       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.
