In Mindful Birthing, pioneering nurse-midwife Nancy Bardacke provides expectant families everywhere with the tools they need to reduce the stress, fear, and pain associated with pregnancy and childbirth. Founder of the University of California San Francisco's Mindful-Based Childbirth Preparation course, Bardacke has spent four decades helping thousands of pregnant, birthing, and postpartum families and their infants apply mindfulness practice to their lives. Trained in mindful-based stress reduction by Jon Kabat-Zinn, her practical knowledge and keen insight will help guide families through the most positive birthing experience possible. Mindful Birthing includes a foreword by Kabat-Zinn himself.
