From the Back Cover
Easing Labor Pain is a positive and encouraging guide to everything an expectant mother can do-from pregnancy through postpartum, but especially during labor-to make sure that pain does not overshadow the joy of giving birth. Adrienne Lieberman presents a host of techniques that work, including breathing and relaxation exercises, massage, biofeedback, acupressure, hypnosis, and many more. With practical advice about choosing the best childbirth class, birth attendant, and birth environment, and about the pros and cons of drugs and medical procedures, Easing Labor Pain is the essential guide to a more comfortable and rewarding birth.
