Prepared me for birth
This book prepared us for the 18 hours of labor that I went through with my first baby. I knew what to expect and how to work through it. It's not a method widely used in my area and a nurse commented on how well I did in labor and wanted to look more into Dr. Bradley's method. The key is to actually practice relaxation and breathing long before the day you go into labor so that his method comes naturally.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Insightful Truths Why All Can Give Birth Naturally
Dr. Bradley tells couples exactly what both the pregnant mother and the expecting father should be doing in preparation for labor and how to achieve a natural, normal birth experience. Dr. Bradley focuses on the father in this book entitled Husband Coached Childbirth because Dr. Bradley's years of experience in obstetrical practice taught him that no person's presence in the labor room is more important than the laboring mother's husband. If the husband is her emotional rock and support outside of childbirth, then he should be the #1 support person during childbirth, too. Dr. Bradley advises husbands how to fulfill their important role by giving husbands the understanding they need about childbirth so they can properly assist their pregnant wives during pregnancy and during labor and delivery! Dr. Bradley shares insightful knowledge on how to have a natural, normal birth that every couple, CBE, doula, midwife, OB should follow. This is an excellent read and unmatched resource for all.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I think this book was excellent. It is geared towards the father, and even if women are the ones giving birth, the fathers want to be a part of that, and Dr. Bradley did a wonderful job with this. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in a more natural childbirth.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Absolutely the Best Way
My husband and I used this Bradley book back in 1966 before birthing as a couple was accepted. My husband and I both read the book. It changed all our plans for birthing and over the years we had 4 wonderful birthing experiences- shared, full of joy, and without pain for me. My copy is now in tatters from being read and re-read. A marvelous guide for couples that wish to have birthing as a shared experience.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
