I have decided that Thurdays will be my day to post reviews of resources that I have found to be extremely helpful in helping mothers have safe and healthy births. I like to keep things simple, not to mention frugal !
There days everyone is looking for a bargain. But frugal doesn't mean cheap!
Frugality implies big value for the money. And that is what today's resource will give you.
The book, The Official Lamaze Guide to Giving Birth With Confidence, is the single best resource I have encountered in my many years of teaching about birth. It is concise, but the information that is shared is the bottom line, nitty gritty, go-to-know stuff about birth, especially if you plan to birth in a medical setting.
Some of you might relate to this comparison. I would say that this book is to birth what The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding is to breastfeeding. Formatted in a similar, easy to read way, with beautiful photos and strategically placed nuggets of wisdom, this book will give you the information you need to plan your birth, from choosing a place of birth and a caregiver, to comfort measures that really work without compromising you or your baby's health. It will help you ask the right questions of your caregiver, so that you will not feel intimidated by all of the options and interventions.
This book is worth it's weight in gold, but for a mere $12.00, you can obtain a treasure trove of confidence, an investment that will continue to pay off for many years to come.
