"Instead of distracting yourself from the birth process... you are fully mindful and wholly engaged during Bradley's method of natural childbirth."-Natural Life magazine The Bradley Method, used and praised by women for more than thirty years, prepares couples for drug- and surgery-free natural childbirth. Many births today are still medicated, forceped, or Caesarean--not natural. The Bradley Method changes all that for couples who wish to give birth in a relaxed, warm, loving environment that maximizes the joy of the birth experience--and puts the mother in control. Certified childbirth educator Susan McCutcheon, one of Dr. Bradley's first students, now makes this natural approach to childbirth more accessible than ever to American women. You will learn: - The crucial differences between the Bradley Method and Lamaze--and why you may end up medicated with the latter- How to choose a doctor who will respect your wishes for natural childbirth- Exercises and nutrition to get your body ready for birthing- How to involve your partner as a birth coach and a fully engaged participant- The truth about episiotomy, Caesarean surgery, and other routine medical interventions that may pose needless risk to your baby "Robert Bradley put power in patients' hands, reducing the number of Caesarean sections and episiotomies he performed and playing up natural ways of making childbirth less painful."-Slate "The Bradley Method's simple objective, through relaxation, breathing, and visualization, is a birth free of the interventions frequently offered to women in the different stages of childbirth: fetal monitors, drug-induced labor, anesthesia, episiotomy, and Caesarean section. [Its] other defining feature, the husband's active participation in the delivery, is critical to this overall goal of an intervention-free birth."-Mothering magazine

This book is a great guide for both parents to be, to prepare for the most natural birth possible under whatever circumstances! We were blessed to have 4 natural drug-free births, each an amazing experience, each of which involved both parents following their practised Bradley techniques. I'm a physiotherapist, and I found this book much more relevent and applicable for our birth preparation and event than the techniques I used to teach in ante-natal classes!!
