POP: 50 Amazing Secrets to a Successful Labor & Delivery or C-section
A woman can read a dozen pregnancy books before giving birth and still find herself lost once the process actually begins. What do contractions really feel like? How long do different stages of labor last? Do epidurals really work? How does one handle the pain without one? Pamela Peery didn’t realize how ill-prepared she was for giving birth until labor was upon her, and the experience inspired her to collect the advice and stories of others. The result is POP: 50 Amazing Secrets to a Successful Labor & Delivery or C-Section. This slim volume is packed with quotes from more than eighty women regarding their own experiences with having a baby. No matter what questions you might have, whether you’re expecting your first or have already been through birth before, this book is sure to provide some inspiration. What should you bring to the hospital? Find ideas that might not be included on other lists. Curious about early labor? Get some ideas about what to expect. Read the thoughts of women who have had epidurals—they usually work, and you can still push even when you’re numb—as well as of women who have gone all natural—remember that your body is made to give birth. POP would make a great gift to any expectant mama.
