    As another reviewer stated every labor attendant should read this Moms to be would benefit from it too – although it’s technical it’s still comprehensible and organized well especially if you’re reading other books in tandem My doula said it’s the one book she always has with her

    This book is fantastic The information is research based with references at the end of every chapter and the organization really does make it a handbook In addition to early chapters that deal with general dytocia causes and recommendations later chapters are divided up by the stage of labor and with two additional chapters at the end that are references re labor positions with purposes and proscriptions and comfort measures I feel my confidence in dealing with fetal malposition and tolerating labor pain has improved exponentially and I would recommend this book to all birth attendants women who want to be informed re labor and labor coaches Now if I can just be sure my husband understands all the information in here too we'll be set My one ualification is that the second edition is now five years old and I think Simkin should give us a third edition with updates re recent research I would buy it

    The book focuses on reasons for slow progress and solutions to try including positions comfort techniues and resolving any emotional reasons It's a great reference for anyone working in birthing I liked that it included what scientific studies have said about the subject

    Incredibly helpful and well laid out as a resource both for birth assistant training and during births Thorough well researched and the diagrams are useful Highly recommend


  5. Anicka Anicka says:

    Great alternative to birth preparation books aimed at parents This one doesn't try to sell you any kind of specific philosophy but simply concentrates on approaches that promote low intervention birth and are supported by evidence or at least experience All the advice is neatly summarized in chapters 9 and 10 so that you can review it whenever you need to

    Must go in doula bag This book is full to the brim with useful tips instructions and facts to help a laboring women deliver with the least possible need for cesarean section or other intervention


  7. Elisabeth Elisabeth says:

    I loved reading this the pictures helped explain situations good


  8. Melissa Haley Melissa Haley says:

    Great resource Well organized Such a shame that they chose to use gendered language as if making a note about it at the beginning is acceptable penance

    Wow This book is so useful especially for someone like me whose mind works best in a linear graphic way Starting with definitions and moving from before labor through pre labor early labor active labor to second stage the authors explore why and how labor can be dysfunctional and what to do to restore it to functionality There are also sections with specific descriptions of maternal positions and movements and comfort measuresI do know however that in labor or when with a woman in labor one doesn't necessarily use the information laid out here in such a linear A B C way Intuition plays a big role and communication in deciding what to actually do in the moment when something is making a labor difficult and long Oftentimes though I think birth attendants can feel just as stuck as the mom does when things are not going smoothly and having the information in this book or maybe even the book itself at hand to get some new ideas working could be a huge help at those times

    The information provided in the book is research based and the citations can be found at the end of every chapter so you can read it from the source It's laid out just like a handbook In addition to early chapters that deal with general dytocia causes and recommendations later chapters are divided up by the stage of labor and with two additional chapters at the end that are references for labor positions with purposes and proscriptions and comfort measures I love that the updated version includes some info from Gail Tully on fetal positioning and what we can do about it
