Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Painless Childbirth: An Empowering Journey Through Pregnancy and Birth is a nine-step guide designed to help mothers better understand themselves and the baby that is forming inside their belly. Painless Childbirth promotes self-confidence, urging women to take charge of their well-being as they make informed decisions about their prenatal care, their life choices, and their emotional state.

Giuditta Tornetta offers a clear, easy-to-follow process that leads women to discover their innate ability to give birth to their babies and build their self-esteem. She'll help you tune out some of the supposed experts and fear-based pregnancy guides and help you rely on your own inner knowledge. Studies have shown that the quality of life in the womb is in direct correlation with the quality of the future life. Over the course of nine months, a mother is encouraged to look at the mix of emotional, psychological, and spiritual influences that have shaped her and will mold her baby's present and future. This essential guide is filled with practical tools and exercises to empower the mother to overcome the many obstacles and fears that stand in the way of her serenity and preparation for a natural delivery.

Author Giuditta Tornetta says, This is not a new technique, but a call to a shift in consciousness from 'pregnancy and labor are happening to me, ' to 'my baby and I are working together towards the same joyful goal: the making of and arrival of new life.'

Here's what the experts say about Painless Childbirth:

Pregnancy is a beautiful balance of life, love and spirit and Giuditta reflects that perfectly in her gentle book. What a lovely way to prepare for your new life ahead.

--Harvey Karp, MD, FAAP, creator of the book/DVD The Happiest Baby on the Block

Painless Childbirth is filled with heartfelt, practical and scientifically accurate information. It helps women expect the best - and then create it.

--Christiane Northrup, MD, bestselling author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom

The author in her doula practice incorporates pre- and perinatal psychology principles with matter-of-fact assertiveness, and basic p&p premises are authoritatively conveyed throughout the book. This might be the most interesting book yet on a doula's life.

--Joel Evans, MD, OB/GYN, director of The Center for Women's Health in Stamford, CT, author of The Whole Pregnancy Handbook

As we birth our babies, we also give birth to ourselves as mothers. Giuditta's gentle guidance and spiritual nourishment will give confidence and joy on the exquisite journey to motherhood.

--Sarah Buckley, MD, is the author of Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering: A Doctor's Guide to Natural Childbirth and Gentle Early Parenting Choices

Synopsis:

"Painless Childbirth: An Empowering Journey Through Pregnancy and Childbirth" is a road map for a woman to achieve painless childbirth.

Synopsis:

Painless Childbirth is filled with heartfelt, practical and scientifically accurate information. It helps pregnant women expect the best - and then create it. Christiane Northrup, M.D., best-selling author of Women@s Bodies, Women@s Wisdom

Painless Childbirth: An Empowering Journey Through Pregnancy and Childbirth is a road map for a woman to achieve painless childbirth. Rather than offer advice or solutions for the many challenges that surface during pregnancy - which most books on pregnancy do - Giuditta Tornetta offers a nine-step process that leads women to discover their innate ability to give birth to their babies and build their self-confidence. She does this by basing the experience more on inner knowledge and less on experts.

While many women react violently to the use of the word painless in connection with childbirth, every year thousands of women worldwide - and from differing backgrounds - experience a painless childbirth. The author herself has experienced it. How does this happen?

Pain is what we feel when something goes wrong. When we break a leg or sprain a joint, we feel pain. There is no relief unless we resort to painkillers. By contrast, childbirth is a natural event with a known positive outcome. And while a birth contraction is indeed intense, it lasts only a minute and then you get a break. When a woman learns to manage these contractions one minute at a time, she learns that labor is very different from what she has experienced as pain in her life so far. Once the baby is born, the sensations of labor go away, and the mother has a happy, amazing, loving baby snuggling in her arms.
