Book "Well-being and maternity" by Dr. Bernadette De Gasquet

The book

Waiting for the unborn child is an exceptionally rich period of sensations, emotions and also questions. Well-being and maternity invites you to live the fullness of these nine months without tarnishing them with small problems or unanswered questions. Even when "everything is going well", you can feel back pain, digestive or circulatory problems, sleep disorders, all too often neglected ailments that can easily be solved. All it takes is clear explanations, daily arrangements (a stool, cushions, a raised bed, for example) or massages to restore well-being. Useful every day, from the start of pregnancy, Well-Being and Maternity guides your discoveries: how to prepare the perineum, how to help the pelvis to adapt to the passage of the baby and then to close, how to facilitate the descent of the child and give birth to it gently, how to "find" your body during childbirth, an often delicate moment. Massages, stretching in suspension, offer fathers happy moments of active participation. Well-being and maternity, concrete dialogue with the future mother, has become, over the course of its editions, a reference guide for future parents. The author develops a practical approach that respects maternal physiology and considers future parents as active partners for a serene involvement, in complete safety and in harmony with the obstetrical team during the birth of their child. Bernadette de Gasquet's approach is based on the most recent medical studies and on the reappropriation of the traditional practices of matrons of the past or of other cultures. This search for the right body work leads her to offer adjustments to the childbirth position, a gentle non-violent push for the child and for the maternal perineum, an authentic follow-up of the aftermath of childbirth too often reduced to a few days of 'hospitalization. The original design of the early work of the abdominals, without pressure on the perineum, sweeps away the received ideas and allows a global recovery without risk. And this seventh edition offers a new perspective on birthing positions. Stemming from the attention and precision of thousands of consultations, Well-Being and Maternity offers a wealth of practical information and day-to-day advice that will help you well beyond pregnancy. 212 exercises, 400 photographs to peacefully preserve your bodily well-being. Exercises for two, applications in daily life and the "baby's point of view" complete this method.
