FREE SHIPPING ANYWHERE IN AUSTRALIA.
Doulas, midwives, obstetricians and childbirth educators – a six-pack of Cheers to Childbirth for $120. Give them to your clients and they will love you a little bit extra. Don’t just buy one for your library – then the author is not properly paid for her effort.
This book has been a favourite with expectant dads for more than a decade. Now it is updated, bigger and better than ever before. And it is very pro-doula and balanced in its approach to models of care.
Cheers to Childbirth is chock-full of practical knowledge on how to support a woman through childbirth and in the months thereafter. It also includes candid, hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking birth stories told by some of Australia’s best-known dads: Bondi lifeguard Andy Reid, champion boxer Danny Green, TV guy Osher Günsberg, Olympian Steven Bradbury, broadcaster Jeremy Fernandez and actors Shane Jacobson, Charlie Clausen and Steve Bastoni. There are two same-sex couples in the birth story mix and all are men from incredibly diverse cultural and professional backgrounds. It just goes to show that no matter how famous you are, this childbirth caper is a learning curve for all of us.
