1989, new mothers' mates, friends, and relatives and
doulas (professional birth assistants) have relied on
Penny Simkin's guidance in caring for the new mother from
the last few weeks of pregnancy through the early
postpartum period. Fully revised in its third edition, The
Birth Partner remains the definitive guide for preparing
to help a woman through childbirth and the essential
manual to have at hand during the event. This completely
updated edition includes thorough information on:
Preparing for labor and knowing when it has begun; Normal
labor and how to help the woman every step of the way;
Epidurals and other medications for labor; Non-drug
techniques for easing labor pain; Cesarean birth and
complications that may require it; Breastfeeding and
newborn care; And much more. For the partner who wishes to
be truly helpful in the birthing room, this book is
indispensable"--|cProvided by publisher.
