The physiology of pregnancy, the development of the foetus, and the successive stages of labour are described in detail. Moving on from the pioneer work of Grantly Dick-Read and later psychoprophylactic techniques Mrs. Kitzinger's research and teaching focus particularly on the psychological aspects of child-bearing, on the preparation of both wife and husband not only for birth but for parenthood and marital adjustment, and on a girl's changing relationship with her own mother." -- Publisher's description
Birth crisis by Sheila Kitzinger( )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When a woman is denied all choice - feels as if she has been swallowed up by a vast machine and spat out at the other end with a baby - how can she come to terms with that ordeal? One new mother in twenty is diagnosed with traumatic stress after childbirth. In Birth Crisis Sheila Kitzinger explores the disempowerment and anxiety experienced by these women. Topics include: increasing intervention in pregnancy, the shift in emphasis from relationships to technology in childbirth, how family, friends and professional caregivers can reach out to traumatized mothers, how women can work through stress to understand themselves more deeply and grow in emotional maturity, how care and the medical system needs to be changed Birth Crisis draws on mothers' voices and real-life experiences to explore the suffering after childbirth which has, until now, been brushed under the carpet. It is a fascinating and useful resource for student and practicing midwives, all health professionals, and women and their families who want to learn how to overcome a traumatic birth

Ourselves as mothers : the universal experience of motherhood by Sheila Kitzinger( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sheila Kitzinger writes with understanding of the problems facing mothers in the West today, about the pain of infertility, the struggles of working mothers, the myth of the "new man," the underrating of housework, and the ways in which women try to juggle their identities as both mothers and achievers in today's world. Citing examples from India to Jamaica, South Africa to Communist China, she reveals what motherhood means in our own and different cultures. From preparing for pregnancy to the ritualization of hospital birth, from the bonds forged between mother and child to the changes in behavior expected of women when they become mothers, Kitzinger's unique anthropological exploration enables us to reflect upon and reexamine our own rituals. Ourselves as Mothers is the most comprehensive and wide-ranging study of its kind, and an invaluable contribution to our knowledge of women and society. It is a celebration of the diversity, the ingenuity, the energy, and the courage of the great sisterhood of mothers
