Book: Birth Without Violence
Author: Frederick Leboyer M.D.
Should the child birth be a painful experience for both the mother and the child?.
Should the child birth happen in a place filled with bright light, noise and people?.
Should the child cry out loud as soon as they are born?.
Should the umbilical cord be cut immediately?.
Should the child be separated from the mother, cleaned and weighed immediately?.
What if everything that we know about child birth is wrong?.
If children are angels, shouldn’t their entry to this world be a fairy tale?.
Frederick Leboyer, who has himself delivered more than 10,000 babies, shows us that child birth does not have to be a terrifying experience. Before I say a word, please look at the below comparison.
Can you sense the difference?.
We were taught by the society, our parents, our grand parents for generations that child birth has to happen in a certain way. Even bible says so. Why should we think otherwise?.
The man who delivered thousands of babies in the regular way, felt that this process could be improved. He made small, simple changes to the child birth process and helped 1000+ babies to transition to the world from their mothers womb in a pleasant, enjoyable way. All you need is a lot of patience, compassion, love for the baby and let the nature do its job in its own time. No need to rush and interfere.
Some of the small changes he did were
… and many more tips on how to handle the baby during the entire process.
The whole books reads like a poem. Mesmerizing. I couldn’t close the book. When you are done reading, you are sure to have a smile on your face. If you are planning for a baby or not, please read this book. This is one of the few books that changed the world permanently. Look at the 12 hrs old baby who was born in a natural way.
Me and my wife are glad that we got to know this before our first child. We are definitely going to make our child’s entry to this world a very pleasant one. I am very much thankful for Frederick Leboyer for writing this book. I thank my friends Reba and Paul for successfully deliver a cute baby girl in the most natural way possible and all the information and encouragement that we received from them regarding child birth.
This book is a must read for all :)Please buy the book from your local bookstore.
