Labour. Get ready for it. It’s gonna happen. And while there’s no such thing as a plan, you can do what you need to feel prepared, quietly confident and in calm control. Birth Skills is a super handy step by step guide with Juju Sundin’s proven pain management techniques for your labour and birth (and, notably, noone elses). She’ll help you understand what your body is doing and why, and how you can actively manage the pain and stay in control while helping your body do what it's designed to. As a physiotherapist in private obstetric practice in Sydney, Juju is one of Australia's most prominent educators in prenatal education including both childbirth preparation and holistic pregnancy fitness. Her dynamic and innovative teaching style has inspired thousands of women and men towards a rewarding childbirth experience. Her philosophy? Birth is not about being a natural birth, an epidural birth or a Caesarean birth - all of these are possibilities, but she doesn’t believe in getting bogged down in labels. JuJu believes the focus should be on LEARNING from reading, attending classes, personal insights, life experience, talking and sharing, preparing physically and mentally - and then, on the day, with you as richly equipped as possible, take each 60 sec contraction one by one. Birth Skills by Juju Sundin will help you get into a great headspace to enjoy and prepare for labour. You got this! 

Key insights:

  • how your body works in labour and why
  • how to turn fear into positive action so you stay in control
  • how to use movement, breathing, vocalisation, visualisation, keywords and other handy techniques
  • what to wear, what to take, and what questions to ask
  • how your partner can help, and working as a team
  • other women's experiences using Juju's techniques.

Birth is all about the bigger picture -- educating and empowering yourself, giving it a try, doing it your way, and a healthy mother and baby. - Juju Sundin 

Editors notes

This guide also includes an insight into Sarah Murdoch’s experience with Juju’s techniques. Even after reading countless pregnancy books I still didn't understand what my labour would be like. All I really knew was it would be painful and scary. Then my obstetrician suggested I take Juju Sundin's birth skills classes. Juju gave me the knowledge to understand my body during labour and taught me about the physiology of pain and how to use her techniques to deal with it. - Sarah Murdoch

Worth the purchase

I was surprised how useful this book was- lots of different approaches to consider, open minded and positive. Much better value (and frankly more helpful) than the calmbirth class we did.
