Books-Choosing Waterbirth

click images to view larger

Lakshmi Bertram-From Library Journal Bertram, a mother of five and a yoga instructor, recounts each of her labor and delivery experiences using the gentle and natural method of water birth. Intended as an illustrated manual from pregnancy to birth to recovery, the book includes sections on prenatal yoga postures, techniques for birthing in water, choosing a home birth, breast feeding, and parenting a new baby. This intensely personal work is imbued with a spiritual perspective relative to both the physical and psychological aspects of motherhood. While the text offers expectant mothers encouragement and reassurance, a list of additional resourcesDassociations, centers where water birthing is available, books, tapes, and web sitesDwould have been useful. As water birth becomes more mainstream, public libraries may wish to include this book in their wellness collections.
