Format: Hardcover
While I am not a "mainstream " childbirth educator, there are many aspects of this book that I have found myself referring back to during my teaching career. It was very helpful in learning about the adult learner and thier particular physical, emotional , sociocultural and cognitive needs. The chapter on the "the basis of relaxation" was very interesting as it helped me understand the history of using relaxation in childbirth and the different philosphies behind each technique. Biofeedback, therapeutic touch and acupressure were presented in an extremely informative manner. The basics of the childbirth education business arepresented( something that can be overlooked in most teachers passion for their "Cause"). A very mainstreamm textbook that can be of great value to both hospital and independent educators alike.

Format: Hardcover
This is a book that covers just a little bit of everything in perinatal education. It has non-biased information, solid references, and an easy-to-read format.
This book cannot be read in one sitting because it is a typical (rather dry) academic textbook. But it is a book that you will refer to again and again.
