Birth Crisis by Sheila Kitzinger
Book DescriptionOne new mother in twenty is diagnosed with traumatic stress after childbirth. In Birth Crisis Sheila Kitzinger explores the disempowerment and anxiety experienced by these women. Key topics discussed include: * increasing intervention in pregnancy * the shift in emphasis from relationships to technology in childbirth * how family, friends and professional caregivers can reach out to traumatized mothers * how women can work through stress to understand themselves more deeply and grow in emotional maturity * how care and the medical system needs to be changed. Birth Crisis draws on mothers' voices and real-life experiences to explore the suffering after childbirth which has, until now, been brushed under the carpet. It is a fascinating and useful resource for student and practising midwives, all health professionals, and women and their families who want to learn how to overcome a traumatic birth.

Passion for Birth, Hardback (May 2015)
Sheila Kitzinger, passionate campaigner for women's and babies' rights, childbirth educator and author, describes the experiences that have shaped her since childhood and the enormous changes that have taken place over the last 50 years on the subject of birth.
Birth and Sex, Paperback (October 2012)
Sex and birth are often talked about as contrasting experiences. In fact, when birth is physiological, not medical or surgical, and a woman is free to be spontaneous, endorphins surge into her blood stream in the same way as during sexual excitement. Sheila Kitzinger discusses the sexuality of birth.
Birth Over 35, Paperback (July 2011)
Women over 35 (or even younger) expecting a first baby are automatically assigned to a "high risk" category. Research, however, suggests that the mother's overall health is more important than age per se. This updated version of Birth Over 35 provides the specialist information needed by 'older' mothers.
