Calm Birth : New Method for Conscious Childbirth (Paperback)

The "trauma of childbirth" is a commonly heard phrase, but one that Calm Birth authoritatively counters. Calm Birth combines three proven practices that together create a powerful new approach. These practices — relaxation,
meditation, and healing — combine with current scientific knowledge to nurture the expectant mother’s natural ability to give birth in true harmony with her body and with her infant.

The book contextualizes the multilayered Calm Birth method within the existing literature of mind/body medicine and meditation science, as well as the meditation traditions from which two of the methods originate. The author complements the thoughts of renowned experts including Carlos Castaneda and Carolyn Myss with eight inspiring case studies of women who have experienced calm births.

Instinctive Birthing

by Val Clarke

Instinctive Birthing aims to help women rediscover the instincts that can promote a happy pregnancy and a successful delivery, whether at home or in the hospital. Every woman has an "inner voice," which can provide information on the health of her baby, laboring positions, even the right time to push. This instinct is also important when being asked to consider pain-relief options and other medical interventions.

Val Clarke’s lifetime as a midwife has given her the experience to help women recognize and listen to this wise counsel; here, she covers the entire birth process, explaining where instinct has a role to play and why it is usually correct.
