Ina May Gaskin is America’s foremost midwife. She shares her unique birthing wisdom in this inimitable guide to childbirth from the one who knows how to get you through it all. Gaskin outlines various techniques and methods to get the most natural out of motherhood while recognizing the many benefits that come with modern medical intervention.
The holistic approach used in Ina May’s guide to childbirth is designed to help women overcome the physical stressors that often get in the way. Whether due to previous labor experiences or new developments in technology, women are able to reduce the physical stressors that interfere with their ability to birth naturally.
Gaskins first became a famous personality in the world of holistic medicine. After her first child was born in 1917, Ina May Gaskin experienced a profound sense of excitement about motherhood and the possibilities for what lay ahead for her family. For years she labored to create a birthing center that would give her and other women in her position the tools and encouragement needed to be successful. Now in the age of the total baby boomer population, this pioneering midwife has gathered a group of like-minded women who want the same things for their children that she did.
The Methods Of Reiki, Acupuncture, And Herbal Medicine
Gaskins utilizes the methods of Reiki, acupuncture, and herbal medicine to provide her patients with the tools they need to become healthy once again. Her holistic approach allows her to teach women the techniques they will need during their birthing experience, but she also stresses the importance of creating an environment that is relaxing and peaceful. This is because she recognizes that not only can these techniques relieve the physical stress of childbirth, but they can also help the mother to bond with her child.
Part of what makes Ina May’s guide to childbirth so effective is that she offers practical advice throughout her book. This means that rather than talking about what to expect during labor and delivery, she shares practical ways for mothers to be more comfortable with their situation and their ability to handle the experience. She also offers suggestions for relaxation and stress reduction techniques that will make the entire labor and delivery process easier on all concerned. Gaskins even has a couple of sample nursery poems that she encourages women to read during the labor and delivery process to help them become more attuned to their bodies.
Prepare Them For A Natural Childbirth
Ina May Gaskins also guides women to re-birth classes that can help prepare them for natural childbirth. This is because scientific research has shown that many women do not thrive in controlled, unnatural environments. By taking these classes, women can learn how to handle themselves during the actual labor and delivery process. Reception and aftercare are also addressed in these classes, as well. This means that when women go into the class, they are already prepared to welcome their newborn into the world and know how to care for it properly once it arrives.
What makes Ina May’s guide to childbirth so valuable is the fact that it is all based on actual case studies. Gaskins studied real-life situations from the standpoint of medical, first aid techniques, and she used these case studies to create a guide for women that teaches you how to work under pressure. In this guide, you do not have to worry about fainting, leaking blood or other such common mistakes that often happen during actual natural childbirth. You will learn how to handle pain and stress, as well as identify what foods and supplements you should eat in order to make sure you are as comfortable as possible during your labor and delivery.

There is also a 30 day money back guarantee so that women who do not find the information useful can also return the book and receive a full refund.

Ina May makes learning childbirth much more accessible by making it simple and inexpensive to learn.
