Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Waterbirth is an all-natural, gentle, pain-reducing, fulfilling, and empowering birthing method, in which mother and infant start their new life together in a relaxing and deeply familiar environment: warm water. But is it safe? How does water reduce the pain? And is it really more beneficial to your baby?

In this complete guide to waterbirth, a yoga instructor and mother of five "water babies" relates her own experiences in the tub while providing the important information that every parent needs to understand, prepare for, and undertake waterbirthing:

  • The basics of natural birth
  • How water immersion promotes the feeling of well-being while reducing pain
  • How to locate birthing facilities, practitioners, and tubs
  • Exercises designed to relax and strengthen the mother
  • How to create the ideal birthing environment
  • Practical advise for breast-feeding, baby massage, and more

    In addition, Choosing Waterbirth contains a complete prenatal yoga program with exercises and breathing and relaxation techniques designed to prepare the mother for an easier labor and delivery. More than 80 photos, including some of the author giving birth in water, bring the experience vividly to life.

    If you are interested in creating a loving, positive, empowering, and fulfilling birth experience, Choosing Waterbirth will provide you with all the information, practical guidance, and insight you'll ever need.

  • Synopsis:

    A complete manual and support guide for the entire process of childbearing - from pregnancy to birth recovery.

    Synopsis:

    A mother of six gives you all you need to know to have your own waterbirth, including the philosophy, resources, and encouragement; includes a complete pre-natal yoga program, and introduction and foreword by medical doctors.

    Being 4 months pregnant, my husband and I began looking seriously into our birthing options. We already knew we were going all natural, meaning no medication. We also loved the idea of birthing in the water. Obviously there were a lot of questions because water birth in my circle of friends is non-existent. Being the book worms we are we went to the local library and found Lakshmi Bertram's book "Choosing Waterbirth: Reclaiming the Sacred Power of Birth." Honestly the title scared me a little. Being a devout Messianic Jew I didn't want to read about praying to a water god or other like practices. But the book was wonderful and wasn't at all what I expected. I am convinced more now than ever that a waterbirth is right for us and I know I'll have the strength to do it without the help of western medicine. The chapter on Yoga I started to do daily and believe me it cures lower back and leg pain. She also has a full chapter dedicated to her last birth and included photos for those of us who have never seen a waterbirth or any birth for that matter. I recommend this book to anyone looking at a waterbirth. It's an older book so check if it's in your local library and if you're like me you'll want to buy it and keep it on hand through out pregnancy. Congrats on your pregnancy and happy birthing!
