Birthing from Within

Here is a holistic approach to childbirth that examines this profound rite-of-passage not as a medical event but as an act of self-discovery. Exercises and activities such as journal writing, meditation, and painting will help mothers analyze their thoughts and face their fears during pregnancy. For use during birth, the book offers proven techniques for coping with labor pain without drugs, a discussion of the doctor or midwife’s role, and a look at the father’s responsibilities. Childbirth education should also include what to expect after the baby is born. Here are baby basics, such as how to bathe a newborn, how to get the little one to sleep, and tips for getting nursing off to a good start. Pregnancy, birth, and postpartum is a process of continuous learning and adjustment; Birthing From Within provides the necessary support and education to make each phase of birthing a rewarding experience.

This book embraces birth as a metamorphic experience—a rite of passage in which you are initiated by opening to the unbidden, embodying your own wisdom, and gaining freedom from limiting beliefs.

Transformed by Birth

"Britta, you are a master at what you do." —P!NK, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter As expecting parents, you’re bombarded with more information—and opinions—than ever about the “right” approach to pregnancy and childbirth. How do you navigate this ocean of information—not only to find the best practical solutions for you personally, but also to embrace this incredible opportunity for emotional and spiritual transformation that comes from bringing a child into this world? With Transformed by Birth, Dr. Britta Bushnell has created the transformative, intelligent, and empowering pregnancy and childbirth guide you’ve been waiting for. This book embraces birth as a metamorphic experience—a rite of passage in which you are initiated by opening to the unbidden, embodying your own wisdom, and gaining freedom from limiting beliefs. Our culture has inundated us with limiting ideals that prevent us from fully engaging in the journey of pregnancy and childbirth—including a need for control and certainty, vilification of pain, and reverence for technology and intellectual knowledge, among others. Dr. Bushnell helps you clear away unwanted beliefs and behaviors so you can open to the meaning and power of this uniquely life-changing experience. Here she offers daily practices, rituals, exercises, and more to help you cultivate resilience, power, and connection during this transformative time. Childbirth is more than just having a baby. Transformed by Birth invites you to discover childbirth as a transformational experience that alters your knowing of who you are and lasts long after pregnancy and birth are over.

Heart Centered Pregnancy Journal

This book will take you on a hunting expedition - a journey through your psyche, your mind, and the many experiences you have lived up until this moment.

Heart Centered Pregnancy Journal

Despite the amazing amount of knowledge, training, and learning materials available to pregnant people, parents frequently emerge from the birth experience feeling lost - like they were lacking a map to navigate the transformation, uncertainty, and soul opening that would accompany childbirth, as well as a map for processing and integrating their experience afterward. This book will take you on a hunting expedition - a journey through your psyche, your mind, and the many experiences you have lived up until this moment. It will help you access a deep well of knowledge that you couldn't find in a whole library full of books, and open doors to new ways of being and doing. It will help you navigate your birth experience, and come out the other side more emotionally intact, regardless of the specific events of your birth. Regardless of where or how you're hoping to give birth, this book will take you beyond the external noise, advice, stories, and dogma around childbirth to help you build a pain coping mindset, cultivate self-love, connect with your partner and community, engage in ritual and ceremony, find your voice, foster resilience, develop psychological flexibility, gain clarity on your internal and external resources, access inner wisdom, identify limiting beliefs, grow your Parent Archetype, and heal your mind and body after birth. Every parent deserves compassionate guidance and mentoring as they prepare to be initiated by birth. Your courage, efforts, and reflections in your journal will help you navigate the unknown and come through this rite of passage with resolve and self-compassion, no matter how your birth unfolds.

Midwifery Essentials  Basics E Book

Basics is the first title in the Midwifery Essentials series and prepares the reader to understand and master a range of clinical skills safely and with confidence. The jigsaw model of midwifery care is introduced and explained, providing a framework to explore the application of each of the clinical skills described in subsequent chapters. Central to undertaking each of the skills discussed is the need to communicate effectively with women and their families. Effective communication for each clinical skill Principles of infection control and hygiene Essential observations of blood pressure, temperature and pulse Collection of specimens and blood from woman and baby, urinalysis, and venepuncture Principles of medicines management and injection technique Fundamentals of surgical care. Effective communication for each clinical skill Principles of infection control and hygiene Essential observations of blood pressure, temperature and pulse Collection of specimens and blood from woman and baby, urinalysis, and venepuncture Principles of medicines management and injection technique Fundamentals of surgical care. Midwifery Essentials consists of a series of four pocketbooks, based on the popular and successful ‘Midwifery Basics’ articles published in ‘The Practising Midwife’ journal. They have been written in response to many requests from students, midwives and supervisors to combine these articles into a handy text. The books remain true to the style of the articles and have been updated and expanded to create a user-friendly source of information on different aspects of midwifery care. They will stimulate debate and require the reader both to reflect on their current practice, local policies and procedures and to challenge care that is not woman centred. There are many dimensions to the provision of woman-centred care that practitioners need to consider and understand so the series is based on the principles of holistic care, using a ‘jigsaw’ model as a framework. Each aspect of the jigsaw should be considered during the assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of woman-centred maternity care, for example: how does a midwife obtain consent from a woman for a procedure, maintain a safe environment during the delivery of care and make the most of the opportunity to promote health? what are the professional and legal issues in relation to the procedure and is this practice based on the best available evidence? which members of the multi-professional team contribute to this aspect of care and how is it influenced by the way in which care is organised? Series features: Provides information essential for best practice at all stages of pregnancy and birth ‘Jigsaw’ model promotes holistic care Scenarios help readers understand the context of maternity care Activities encourage further exploration and debate.
