Pregnancy (The Complete Childbirth Book) - What the Indian Woman Always Wanted to Know But Was Afraid to Ask
Description
Back of the Book

Pregnancy is that wonderful occasion in life, too precious to be disrupted by irrational fears or unnecessary apprehensions caused by the lack of simple, reliable information. This book will tell you all about childbirth, answering questions about weight gain, proper diet, exercises, breathing patterns, positions to adopt during labour, and postnatal care of both yourself and the baby. Scientific and reliable, the book also offers invaluable, time-tested home remedies.

Nutan Pandit is a graduate of sociology from Mumbai University. Thereafter she did a diploma in journalism and has been freelancing for various magazines. She was converted to the faith when breathing practices helped her have easy childbirth. She started taking natural childbirth classes in 1978. She has visited the National Childbirth Trust in London and attended their classes and workshops. She also went to Dr Michel Odent’s unit at Pithivers, France, renowned for various’ unconventional methods of conducting childbirth. Pandit took classes at various nursing homes and Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi. She now conducts such classes in New Delhi.

It is very useful for a first pregnancy—gets you mentally prepared for what to expect.
