Glückwunsch! Bitte lesen sie diese Anleitung vor Inbetriebnahme gründlich durch. Gratulation, ein Baby!

Kindererziehung gilt als mühselig, kompliziert und teuer. Straffe Stundenpläne, Leistungstests, teure Freizeitaktivitäten und jede Menge Kommerz bringen schon früh eine ungesunde Dosis Stress und Arbeitsethos in das Leben unserer Kinder. Zugleich haben die angestrengten Eltern paradoxerweise das Gefühl, dass sie noch mehr leisten müssten, um die Last der Elternschaft schultern und ihren Kindern etwas bieten zu können. Aber wo sind Kreativität, Spiel und Selbstvertrauen geblieben? In seinem Erziehungsratgeber der anderen Art zeigt Tom Hodgkinson neue Wege zu einer lustvollen Erziehung auf. Unabhängige Kinder und glückliche Eltern, darauf kommt es ihm an. Er fordert uns auf, den Kindern Verantwortung zu übertragen und den Dingen Ihren Lauf zu lassen, anstatt Freizeitspaß teuer einzukaufen. Hodgkinson ignoriert alle modernen Erziehungsratgeber, er lernt stattdessen aus eigenen Fehlern und befragt die großen Denker aus geistvolleren Zeiten, unter ihnen Rousseau, Locke und Lawrence. Und so ist »Leitfaden für faule Eltern« keine Bedienungsanleitung, sondern eine inspirierende Sammlung von Reflexionen über die Frage, wie wir gemeinsam mit unseren Kindern das Leben genießen können.

Erziehen statt Verziehen. Warum werfen französische Kinder im Restaurant nicht mit Essen, sagen immer höflich Bonjour und lassen ihre Mütter in Ruhe telefonieren? Und warum schlafen französische Babys schon mit zwei oder drei Monaten durch? Als Pamela Druckerman der Liebe wegen nach Paris zieht und bald darauf ein Kind bekommt, entdeckt sie schnell, dass französische Eltern offensichtlich einiges anders machen – und zwar besser. In diesem unterhaltsamen Erfahrungsbericht lüftet sie die Geheimnisse der Erziehung à la française.

Meaning and Care at the Start of Life

Highlighting aspects of birth often taken for granted, ignored or left silenced, this book questions the art and meaning of childbirth. Addressing spirituality in and around the start of life from a variety of thought-provoking perspectives, it examines the apparent paradox of impersonal biomedical-technocratic systems operating alongside the meaningful experiences encountered by those involved. Themes covered include: Notions of holism and spirituality, culture, religion and spirituality Childbirth significance at societal level Spiritual care in maternity care provision Birth environment, mood, space and place Spiritual experience of all those involved, including health professionals Spiritual experience when birth is complex and challenging When birth and death are juxtaposed. Although there is considerable literature on spirituality at the end of life, this is the only book that draws together a global and multidisciplinary selection of academic researchers and practitioners to reflect on spirituality at the start of life. Each chapter explores the relevant theoretical background and makes links to practice, using case studies from research and practice. The chapters conclude by discussing: how spiritual care is, and should be, provided in this context; what practice approaches are beneficial; cross-cultural perspectives; and future directions for research. It is an important read for all those interested in childbirth, maternity care, social science perspectives on health and illness, and spirituality.

Practicing as a midwife today requires not only good clinical skills but also a broad understanding of the social and emotional changes a woman experiences before and after birth. This book combines scientific knowledge with the more intangible skills needed for sensitive communication to provide the best possible care to the mother and her family. The second edition of this celebrated text vividly explores the various skills and approaches that lead to successful midwifery practice and uses care stories to bring these to life. Provides a refreshingly new approach to key areas of midwifery practice in a way that brings practice to life. Illustrates and supports the fundamental changes currently taking place in midwifery around the world. Builds on the most up-to-date, evidence-based research to suggest guidelines for best practices. Explores the impact of parenthood and offers strategies for effectively supporting individuals during this period of transition. Includes "care stories" - case studies that highlight positive midwifery care and successful childbirth experiences. Offers contrasting stories from around the world, illustrating how maternity care in industrialized society differs from that in a non-industrial or third world environment. Provides up-to-date research and reference material.

A Good Birth

Finding the Positive and Profound in Your Childbirth Experience

Author: Anne Lyerly

Publisher: Penguin

ISBN: 1101609044

Category: Health & Fitness

Page: 288

View: 3225

Drawing on a landmark study involving more than one hundred pregnant women and mothers, a renowned OB/GYN synthesizes the secrets to a good birth—medically and emotionally. Most doctors are trained to think of a “good” birth only in terms of its medical success. But Dr. Anne Lyerly knows firsthand that there are many other important elements that often get overlooked. Her three-year study of a diverse group of over one hundred expectant moms asked what matters most to women during childbirth. The results, presented to the public for the first time in A Good Birth, show what really matters goes beyond the clinical outcome or even the usual questions of hospital versus birthing center, and reveal universal needs of women, like the importance of feeling connected, safe, and respected. Bringing a new perspective to childbirth, the book’s wisdom is drawn from in-depth interviews with women with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, and whose birth stories range from quick and simple to complicated and frightening. Describing what went well, what didn’t, and what they’d do differently next time, these mothers give voice to the complete experience of childbirth, helping both women and their healthcare providers develop strategies to address the emotional needs of the mother, going beyond the standard birth plans and conversations. Transcending the “medical” versus “natural” childbirth debate, A Good Birth paves the entryway to motherhood, turning our attention to the deeper and more important question of what truly makes for the best birth possible.

Embracing a natural birth through HypnoBirthing® allows parents to take control of the most important event of their lives, and build a stronger connection with their pre-born baby as a conscious little person they can interact with, even before birth. Marie Mongan explodes the myth of pain as a natural accompaniment to birth. It is the fear of pain, a fear that keeps the body tense and closed during birth, which must be released to allow the experience of a gentle birth. HypnoBirthing® helps to shorten birthing and recovery time, allows better (and earlier) bonding with the baby, which means that babies sleep better and feed more easily in their first weeks. REVISED AND UPDATED TO INCLUDE: An in-depth understanding of how the birthing body works Nature's Perfect Birth Plan–why we innately know how to birth without intervention Why medicalised labor hurts more—and why it doesn't have to when done naturally Learning how to birth instinctively How to transition from the afterglow of birth with post-natal care Using the HypnoBirthing® exercises - positive thinking, visualisation, breathing and physical preparation - will lead to a happy and comfortable pregnancy and the confidence, trust and life-affirming nature of your birth can be life-changing for your new family.
