SHEILA KITZINGER is a social anthropologist, respected internationally as one of the foremost authorities in pregnancy, childbirth, motherhood, and grandmotherhood. She has written numerous books and lectured around the world on these subjects. She lives in England with her husband, with whom she has five daughters.
The Complete Book of Pregnancy and Childbirth, fully revised and expanded by Sheila Kitzinger for this new edition, is dedicated to women (and their partners) who wish to play an active role in giving birth rather than submit passively to obstetrical business as usual, and who wish to supplant fear and confusion with understanding. It takes into account the changing nature of women's lives: juggling pregnancy and the workplace, having babies later in life, embarking on single parenthood. It incorporates the very latest scientific research into pain relief; into the advantages and disadvantages of screening in pregnancy, induction of labor, episiotomy, cesarean, and electronic fetal monitoring; and into bonding, breastfeeding, and the abilities of the newborn. It provides a complete, illustrated account of the baby's development inside the uterus. It offers guidance on prenatal care, keeping fit, choosing among the different locations and methods of delivery, and making the emotional transition to parenthood. And it does all this in a single comprehensive volume and in the unique, vivid, and friendly voice of Sheila Kitzinger.
