This work takes a fresh look at what parenting means at the beginning of the 21st century. Addressing both parents, the book looks at all aspects of life, through the nine months of pregnancy and the following nine months of the baby's life. It is both a practical handbook for pregnancy, birth and the early months of a new baby's life, and a stimulating exploration of this period of enormous transition. Taking a holistic approach, it advocates integrated health care, i.e. both conventional and complementary therapies. With its medical content, including a 160-page A-Z section, it also acts as a comprehensive reference.
About the Author
Educated at Witwatersrand Medical School and the University of London, Yehudi Gordon went on to become one of the pioneers of active and water birth in the UK. He is an internationally respected figure and now runs the Birth Unit in North London which is widely recognised as the model for effective, alternative but integrated, safer birthing practice. Actress and writer Emma Thompson was one of his recent high profile clients.
A groundbreaking book on childrearing which will do for the 21st century what Dr Spock and Dr Penny Leach did for the latter part of the 20th century
