The New Pregnancy & Childbirth by Sheila Kitzinger


Sheila Kitzinger is another of my favourite pregnancy and birth authors, she impacted greatly on my preparation for birth as well as on my practice as an antenatal teacher and doula.

Pregnancy and Childbirth is a great book for anyone who wants to know more about how their pregnancy develops week by week, how to look after yourself and how to feel better prepared for giving birth.

There’s practical information, beautiful photos, information about different births, pain relief, support, breathing and going with the flow. It’s a beautiful book.

I am an antenatal teacher, doula, baby massage instructor, postnatal educator, life coach, writer, mum, wife, friend and, sometimes, just me. As an experienced and qualified practitioner, I specialise in pregnancy, birth and early parenting - my aim is to listen, inform, support and reassure when needed. I have worked with parents since 2002 and I set up Birth, Baby & Family in 2011 to provide good information, a different perspective and links to the best products and services for families. I set up the Birth, Baby & Family Centre in 2014 to provide a welcoming, friendly and supportive space for parents across Tyneside.
