Prepare for a safe and joyful birth

The Birth Book by Dr. Sears is a comprehensive, reassuring, and authoritative guide to childbirth. It is rich in information as well as inspiration that enables you to plan and create the birth you want.

Since women enjoy more birthing options today than ever before, the path toward a safe and satisfying birth can be fraught with important decisions. Planning, understanding the resources available to you, as well as developing your own birthing philosophy can make all the difference. This book explores the abundant choices couples face when anticipating the birth of their child.

The Birth Book by Dr. Sears Includes Information on:

  • Selecting the right birthing environment and team
  • Preparing physically and emotionally for childbirth
  • Using prenatal tests and technology wisely
  • Defining the father's role
  • Selecting a childbirth class
  • Lessening the discomfort and speeding the process of labour
  • Choosing or avoiding anesthesia
  • Finding the birthing position that's best for you and your baby
  • Decreasing your chances for a cesarean birth
  • Turning a surgical birth into a rewarding experience

As the parents of eight children and as medical professionals with nearly three decades of experience, Dr. Bill and Martha Sears are uniquely qualified to answer virtually every question you might have about the birth process. Their one-of-a-kind guide enables you to plan and create the birth you want.

William Sears, MD, and Martha Sears, RN, are the pediatrics experts to whom parents are increasingly turning for advice and information on all aspects of pregnancy, birth, childcare and family nutrition. Dr. Sears was trained at Harvard Medical School's Children's Hospital and Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children. He has practices pediatrics for nearly thirty years. Martha Sears is a registered nurse, certified birth educator and breastfeeding consultant.

  1. A great, informative book and an essential read. Review by NOM

    I was scared of birth, so I wanted a book that was not going to terrify me with horror stories (like "What to Expect When You're Expecting"). This book was amazing. I learned a lot of essential things, and the language used was positive and reassuring.

    The authors definitely have the mentality that birth is an amazing experience that every woman CAN do WITHOUT interventions. I loved that. The only thing I didn't read until after was the section at the end of birth stories (even though they are mostly positive, I didn't want any negative thoughts in my mind when I was in labour). And my only problem with that section was that the authors give their opinions of each birth after each story and in one they seemed critical of one mother's reliance on interventions (which to me is a personal choice).

    I consider this book an essential read for all pregnant women who are looking for information and empowerment. Good luck on your pregnancies (btw my son's birth ended up being fantastic, at home, and intervention-free). (Posted on 5/3/12)
