Obstetricks: Mayo Clinic Tips and Tricks for Pregnancy, Birth and More

Huge heartfelt congrats as you anticipate a baby joining your family. Giving birth can be — and should be — an exciting, positive experience. While every labor and delivery has unique challenges, you can help to make it the best possible experience through a combination of comfort techniques, education and an understanding of options.

Obstetricks is a concise guide to pregnancy and childbirth. This book is backed by research and brings you the expertise of Mayo Clinic doctors, midwifes, nurses and doulas. It’s packed with information based on the most current evidence … yet rooted in long-trusted natural methods of caring for laboring women.

With a unique spiral-bound flipbook format, the book's 100+ bite-sized topics can be perused one page at a time while lying in bed, eating breakfast or riding a stationary bike. The front pages offer the most important information for setting up a satisfying childbirth experience, while the back pages add more empowering details, tricks and medical information.

Inside you'll find tips for:

  • Creating healthy habits during pregnancy
  • Recognizing what’s normal as baby grows
  • Planning and preparing for the birth — mentally and practically
  • Managing labor pain, including natural techniques and medical options
  • Providing crucial support as a labor partner
  • Keeping focused on the ultimate goal: a healthy mom and baby

You'll also get the messy truth of what to expect postpartum, advice for enjoying the early days with a newborn and more.
