    I love it!

    As a childbirth educator and founder of Hypnobabies, I very much enjoyed seeing the authors provide us all such a nicely balanced collection of ideas for being more confident and comfortable during childbirth. I always love to see expectant moms research their choices for childbirth and this book has many. Easy Labor starts out with excellent information on choosing your birthing environment and caregivers, addressing childbirth fears and concerns, and giving wonderful resources. The next section is all about epidurals and medications for birthing, with the information women need about the benefits, risks and side effects for each one as well as how and when they are administered, and how a birth partner can help if meds are chosen. Especially helpful are the comments from caregivers and mothers who have experienced using these medications for childbirth. There is even a chapter on medication for Cesarean births that answers many questions for women. Of course the part of the book I am most impressed with is the section on Complementary and Alternative Approaches to Labor-Pain Relief. The authors very sensitively and concisely researched various forms of 'CAMS' (complimentary and alternative medicine) from natural childbirth classes and waterbirthing to using hypnosis, acupuncture, aromatherapy and labor support. Resources are given throughout and the information is very comprehensive. Incredibly fascinating are the chapters on the history of pain relief in childbirth and the birth stories from medical caregivers - their own birth stories! Doulas, OBs, nurses and midwives tell what they experienced, learned, and found helpful for their own baby's births. They also share perspectives on how their own attitudes impact their patient's childbirth experience. Great book. Get it, read it! Kerry Tuschhoff, Hypnobabies
