MotherTouch: Touch Techniques for Birth covers topics such as contraindications, use of acupressure, reflexology, hydrotherapy, general comfort strokes and pain-relieving techniques. Part I discusses benefits, self-care for the touch companion during birth, the importance of establishing communication with the laboring woman and the cultivation of a safe environment. Part II focuses on specific techniques that address different parts of the body and common complaints, including slow labor, exhaustion, back pain and anxiety.
You’ll appreciate the visuals, including those of women laboring in a variety of positions. And a special feature includes a midwife’s story of the use of belly rub and emotional support to encourage labor.
