Empower yourself and reclaim your childbirth experience with the groundbreaking insights shared in this transformative book.

Janet Balaskas’s pioneering work has reshaped the landscape of childbirth, empowering mothers to take an active role in their birthing journey rather than adopting a passive stance as mere “patients.” Through her teachings on “active birth,” she has sparked a movement of women who reject traditional birthing norms, advocating for movement during labor and embracing a diverse array of delivery positions and natural alternatives to medical interventions.

Whether you’re considering a hospital birth, a free-standing birth center, or a home birth, Balaskas’s guidance is invaluable. From water birth to hypnobirthing, this book serves as an indispensable resource, offering practical advice while maintaining a non-judgmental stance, encouraging mothers to choose the birthing method and position that resonates with them.

Explore a range of topics, including pregnancy exercises for optimal preparation, massage, and yoga techniques during labor, and birthing positions that enhance comfort and promote efficient contractions. Additionally, invaluable insights are provided for birth partners, spouses, doulas, and other attendants, ensuring a supportive and informed birthing environment.

As you embark on this journey toward a natural, joyful, and empowering birth, Janet Balaskas’s wisdom will guide you every step of the way, offering relaxation and recovery exercises for the postpartum period and equipping you with the knowledge to embrace childbirth with confidence and resilience.
