Back Labor No More is a *must have* book for all pregnant women! It has made a huge difference for so many of my students; shorter easier labors, turning posterior babies so easily and effectively. It also helps anterior babies to descend faster and easier, since the angle of the baby changes immediately - down and OUT! I also advise all CBE's, doulas, midwives, L&D nurses and OBs to read it and use the techniques with their patients. It can make an otherwise difficult birthing go much smoother, and definitely faster.

I purchased this book on the advice of a childbirth educator and was thrilled with the information. As an engineer, I didn't need the simplistic explanations of vectors, but it is fun to read and can be easily understood by anyone, no matter what their education and background. Learning the "Belly Lift" helped me get through my second experience with back labor more easily than the first time. Combining the knowledge contained in this book with the "Hypnobabies" childbirth hypnosis course allowed me to have a fast, painless, drug-free birth. I recommend this book, especially in combination with Hypnobabies, to any woman who wants a comfortable, enjoyable birth experience! It's such an amazing gift to give yourself and your baby. If you're expecting, buy this book!

I highly recommend this book to any woman who has posterior babies or back labor. My first 3 babies were all posterior and my 4th was until I used this technique through 4 contractions and she turned anterior. So simple, but so helpful!

Janie King's book is a must-read for any woman who wants to avoid the discomfort of back labor and help move her birth along with very little effort. Janie's explanation of vectors just makes sense and when women use her "belly lift" technique -- well, let's just say she better be wherever it is that she plans to give birth! Yes, it's THAT effective!

I'm thrilled that "Back Labor No More" is included in the Hypnobabies Hypnosis for Childbirth program. As a Hypnobabies childbirth instructor, I want to be able to share techniques with my students that will help them to have a gentler, safer, and faster birth (by using hypnosis it's already comfortable!)-- and this technique is one of the best! I highly recommend this book to all expectant moms. The "Belly Lift" ROCKS!!!

My doula loaned me this book and we used the techniques during my labor. My baby turned in three contractions and was born very shortly thereafter. Amazing! I highly recommend this book to any pregnant mom!

Format: Paperback
Regardless of whether you have experienced back labor or not, this book provides fantastic information about how contractions are working to bring your baby into this world! I found the pictures and descriptions very useful in the birth of my second child in which I had both back and abdominal labor.

As I was reading the author's clear descriptions of back labor, I couldn't help but wonder for the umpteenth time why back labor is not more discussed in typical birthing classes? I was totally unprepared for the pain in my first birth.

However, for my second child I felt much more empowered. After 2 hours of "active" labor and getting to 4 cm, I tried the "lifting" technique...and I had a beautiful baby girl within one hour! Of course it was my second child and she had a much smaller head than my first, but I'm willing to give this technique a good deal of the credit.

I have passed along this book to my sister-in-law who is expecting soon and hope it provides her with the same encouragement and success that it did for me.

This book really explains why moms have back labor and how to help prevent it, with a great tool to use during labor if you have it. Pictures really help to get the point across quickly and easily!
