Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The classic book on home birth is now in its fourth edition. Includes updated information on the safety of natural childbirth, new birthing stories, and the most recent statistics on births managed by The Farm Midwives. Mothers-to-be are instructed on how to take care of themselves while pregnant and how to prepare for being a mother and taking care of a new baby. Section III is a comprehensive, in depth manual for midwives on delivery. Includes pictures of births.

Synopsis:

The classic book on home birth is now available in a new edition, with updated information on the safety of natural childbirth, new birthing stories, and the most recent statistics on births managed by The Farm Midwives. Included are stories of working with Amish women, shedding light on a different culture with a similar appreciation for natural childbirth. Ina May also provides new information about potentially dangerous techniques routinely used in hospitals during and after birth, as well as the latest findings about VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean). Improved instructions for handling breech births are also given. When the first edition of Spiritual Midwifery was published in 1976, it introduced an entire generation of young women to the possibility of home birth and breast feeding. It also breathed new life into the all-but-vanished field of midwifery.

Synopsis:

Providing technical expertise for midwives, nurses and doctors, this book features information on labour, delivery, care of the new baby, and breast-feeding, all from a spiritual perspective.

I and all my girlfriends read this book in 1976/77. I along with them, were inspired by this book to have our babies at home. We broke away from the standard hospital procedures that had existed for years and decided to do things our way. A small revolution was inspired by this wonderful book, which finally made the hospitals sit up and pay attention to us. They thought we were crazy. One doctor told me to go to Africa if I wanted to have a natural birth. All the wonderful facilities that hospitals now suply, such as birthing centres, allowing fathers to be present, etc have only come about because of the movement we began based on the knowledge that this book contains. It seems that this book is needed now more than ever as many women have opted for cesareans and drugs, more out of fear and ignorance, than necessity. I recommend this book to every future mother and father .

ps.dr.davis, November 28, 2006 (view all comments by ps.dr.davis)
When I first saw this book at our midwife's office, when I was expecting my fifth baby (fourth born out of the hospital), I thought, "Right--whatever." Then we moved to a new state and I was reading everything our library had on midwives and midwifery because I'd become interested in perhaps becoming a midwife. One of the books featured Ina Mae Gaskin and told a brief bit about her and what she'd done. After reading that, I wished I'd availed myself of the opportunity to read it earlier. When I finally did, I couldn't put it down. The birth stories are a wonderful glimpse into birthing and include the not-so-good along with the spectacular. The rest of the book has lots of practical information for those interested in home birth as well as the practicing midwife. Wonderful book.
