Misconceptions

Truth, Lies, and the Unexpected on the Journey to Motherhood
Author: Naomi Wolf
Publisher: Anchor
ISBN: 1400075599
Category: Health & Fitness
Page: 352
View: 3020
In Misconceptions, bestselling author Naomi Wolf she demythologizes motherhood and reveals the dangers of common assumptions about childbirth. With uncompromising honesty she describes how hormones eroded her sense of independence, ultrasounds tested her commitment to abortion rights, and the keepers of the OB/GYN establishment lacked compassion. The weeks after her first daughter’s birth taught her how society, employers, and even husbands can manipulate new mothers. She had bewildering post partum depression, but learned that a surprisingly high percentage of women experience it. Wolf’s courageous willingness to talk about the unexpected difficulties of childbirth will help every woman become a more knowledgeable planner of her pregnancy and better prepare her for the challenges of balancing a career, freedom, and a growing family. Invaluable in its advice to parents, Misconceptions speaks to anyone connected–personally, medically, or professionally–to a new mother.

Your Amazing Newborn celebrates a baby's extraordinary abilities in the first hours and days of life. Marshall and Phyllis Klaus take parents and all those who care for new families into this freshly charted world, one they have been exploring for decades. The results of their fascinating research are illuminated by over 120 exquisite photographs, all of babies less than two weeks old.Your Amazing Newborn begins before birth with images of fetuses actually comforting themselves in the womb. We then see newborns less than one hour old crawling unassisted to the breast, recognizing the voices of their parents, and shutting our unwanted sights and sounds. Parents will learn how to discover an infant's clear preferences for certain shapes, smells, tastes, and tones of voice. They will be delighted by the ways babies seem to be able to ensure their own survival, and they will be amazed that within days after birth, newborns can engage in an intimate and reciprocal choreography, and nestle into a parent's embrace as though they had practiced for years. Your Amazing Newborn is a must for parents-to-be, grandparents, siblings, and caregivers; through its stunning photographs we see the first reach, the first mutual gaze-and most wonderful of all-the first spark of recognition that ignites a lifetime bond.

What Babies Want

Five Simple Steps to Calming and Communicating with Your Baby
Author: Debby Takikawa,Carrie Contey
Publisher: Lifetime Media
ISBN: 9780981636825
Category: Family & Relationships
Page: 176
View: 3207
A timely and utterly original book that brings together groundbreaking information about what babies truly are, what they know and how we can support them to be their best as they develop and grow. Based on the latest neuroscience, the authors show how the experiences we have at birth sets up our perceptive neurology and influences the way we perceive the events of our lives. What Babies Want looks to cutting edge science, ancient cultures and traditional customs in search of ways to keep our children’s spirits intact. Excerpt on interpreting movements: “When she makes eye contact, smiles and says "Hello", she may get a big smile back, but at some point the baby will quickly duck his head or look away. Why does he do this? This kind of turning away usually means “Hang on a sec, that was so exciting and full of stimulating information, I need a short break to assimilate what just happened.” Turning away is one way that a baby can regulate the level of sensory intake so that he can keep up with what is happening. Once he has integrated the first contact with your friend, he will come back for more.”
