Birthing As Nature Intended by Teresa Van-Zeller: A LaMothe Book Review
Posted Jul 23 2012 11:30am
Birthing As Nature Intended is a great read for anyone who is pregnant or planning to become pregnant. Even if you are expecting your third child you will find this book to be refreshing and informative . Needless to say I wish I had read B.A.N.I. 25 years ago while I was pregnant with my own first born. Teresa Van-Zeller has a wonderful and calming way to say ‘You can do this as millions of women have done before you and you CAN give birth pain free or close to it and have an enjoyable relaxing experience that you will remember for a life time’.
I read this book in less than 3 hours. Every page is packed with useful information and I just couldn’t put it down. I loved the tips Teresa offers throughout the book especially the parts about having a birth plan and making sure you choose a doctor who supports what YOU want. She talks about expectations and how your body and mind react to what others may tell you. (ohhh the horror stories one hears while pregnant!)
I love this book for Surrogates as well as for Intended Parents. Because I am a Surrogacy Consultant, I am always looking for information and guidance regarding pregnancy and labor for my clients. Birthing As Nature Intended allows a glimpse into the world of pregnancy and shares how birth can be an awesome, stress-free experience for everyone involved.
