The Big Book of Birth by Erica Lyon

At last—everything expecting moms need to know about giving birth

Childbirth is one of the most significant events of any woman’s life—and for many, also a source of enormous anxiety and fear. In The Big Book of Birth renowned childbirth educator and Realbirth Center founder Erica Lyon offers an antidote to that fear with a comprehensive and up- to-date guide to childbirth. Drawing from more than a decade of teaching expecting parents what really to expect, Lyon fills the void that currently exists in childbirth literature, offering clear, current, objective advice on everything from choosing your doctor or midwife, to the realities of assisted and cesarean births, to the many different pain-coping options you can use during delivery and proven techniques that can help you relax and often speed along your labor.

The Big Book of Birth guides women through the four stages of labor, dispelling misconceptions and providing a wealth of objective information in a warm, welcoming, and well- organized format. A long-overdue resource, The Big Book of Birth gives expectant mothers the knowledge they need to approach childbirth with confidence and joy.

I bought this book shortly after it came out, and I have to say that I've been really impressed with it so far. She writes with a really easy style, and I never feel patronised or confused. It's a friendly easy to use book, and a pleasure to read. Haven't quite finished it yet so I'll give it four stars for the moment, but there's really nothing to complain about! Recommended for all pregnant women (and even their partners) without a doubt.

What a great book on pregnancy and birth. It is informative and delivered in a very comforting style. If you are thinking of getting pregnant, are pregnant now, or have a friend who is, this is the only book you need. Fabulous!!!
