New Book: Birthing from Within by Pam England

well this week i have hit that 2nd to 3rd tri transition that i've heard so much about, and have been completely zapped of all of my energy (and again, will to live). i've actually had a really tough time, motivationally, so i haven't been on top of my updating. in the last couple of weeks i did manage to finish both Birth Your Way and The Complete Guide to Pregnancy and Childbirth both by Sheila Kitzinger, which i will review together when i build up the motivation. so now i've moved on to my next book:

from B&N:
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 do 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.
