It’s your Baby. The busy woman’s guide to a stress free pregnancy and birth.
By Rosie McCaffrey, RN, Master Social Health, IYTA
This is the first in a series of books that privileges the voice of pregnant women. It is written by my sponsoring teacher in IYTA, Rosie McCaffrey who as a nurse, counselor and yoga teacher who spent over twenty years collecting the knowledge that is held in this book.
As a thirty something, pregnant for the first time young woman, I attended Rosie’s classes twice a week. I gained many precious insights to birth and mothering, mental strength strategies and mindfulness techniques, as well as the traditional yoga techniques and pregnancy modifications that Rosie was so expertly versed in.
In “Quick Tips for Best Birth: It’s your baby. The busy women’s guide to a stress free pregnancy and birth” Rosie explores the many issues that modern women face on their journey to motherhood. The book busts quite a few myths and stereotypes, which can cause problems for contemporary women and results in high intervention rates in birth.
This book is about planning your pregnancy. Rosie advises that mental strength is as important as physical strength, and as with any journey you need to plan well if pregnancy is going to be stress free. You need to know where you are at the start, know where you want to go, what you need to bring, and who your traveling companions will be, and of course you need a map and a guide book. The section explores some of the things you can do when things go wrong, or you take a wrong turn so that you can get back on track and find the best birth outcome for you and your baby.
Rosie’s approach stems from a mindfulness practice of yoga, which is strongly supported by current research as highly beneficial through pregnancy. I believe the book will be invaluable to both pregnant women and those who teach them yoga.
