Laughter in the birthing room, dramatically shorter labor, a reduction of pain, an absence of drugs, fewer complications, robust newborns, and a spirit of pride and joy are the common experiences of couples who use The Bradley Method of childbirth. Developed by renowned obstetrician Dr. Robert A. Bradley, this completely natural method, based on a calming pattern of relaxation, abdominal breathing, and loving teamwork between husband and wife, is now preferred by thousands of physicians and used by couples all over the world. It allows expectant mothers to enjoy the total support of their partners, gives fathers a chance to fully participate in the birth of their children, and provides babies with the best, and healthiest, of all possible starts. Now fully revised and updated, Husband-Coached Childbirth takes parents-to-be step-by-step through the prenatal stages and moment-by-moment through first- and second-stage labor and the actual birth.
