Painless Childbirth: An Empowering Journey Through Pregnancy and Birth is a nine-step guide designed to help mothers better understand themselves and the baby that is forming inside their belly. Painless Childbirth promotes self-confidence, urging women to take charge of their well-being as they make informed decisions about their prenatal care, their life choices, and their emotional state.

Giuditta Tornetta offers a clear, easy-to-follow process that leads women to discover their innate ability to give birth to their babies and build their self-esteem. She'll help you tune out some of the supposed "experts" and fear-based pregnancy guides and help you rely on your own inner knowledge. Studies have shown that the quality of life in the womb is in direct correlation with the quality of the future life. Over the course of nine months, a mother is encouraged to look at the mix of emotional, psychological, and spiritual influences that have shaped her and will mold her baby's present and future. This essential guide is filled with practical tools and exercises to empower the mother to overcome the many obstacles and fears that stand in the way of her serenity and preparation for a natural delivery.

Author Giuditta Tornetta says, "This is not a new technique, but a call to a shift in consciousness from 'pregnancy and labor are happening to me,' to 'my baby and I are working together towards the same joyful goal: the making of and arrival of new life.'"

Here's what the experts say about Painless Childbirth:
"Pregnancy is a beautiful balance of life, love and spirit and Giuditta reflects that perfectly in her gentle book. What a lovely way to prepare for your new life ahead."
--Harvey Karp, MD, FAAP, creator of the book/DVD The Happiest Baby on the Block

"Painless Childbirth is filled with heartfelt, practical and scientifically accurate information. It helps women expect the best - and then create it."
--Christiane Northrup, MD, bestselling author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom

"The author in her doula practice incorporates pre- and perinatal psychology principles with matter-of-fact assertiveness, and basic p&p premises are authoritatively conveyed throughout the book. This might be the most interesting book yet on a doula's life."
--Joel Evans, MD, OB/GYN, director of The Center for Women's Health in Stamford, CT, author of The Whole Pregnancy Handbook

"As we birth our babies, we also give birth to ourselves as mothers. Giuditta's gentle guidance and spiritual nourishment will give confidence and joy on the exquisite journey to motherhood."
--Sarah Buckley, MD, is the author of Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering: A Doctor's Guide to Natural Childbirth and Gentle Early Parenting Choices

From the Author:

I truly loved writing this book and reading all the wonderful stories mothers have bee sending me since its publication.  Just toady I received an amazing email from a woman who so touched my heart. She writes: 
"I am overwhelmed with gratitude for your book right now and I'm only in month 4. I'm not even done with this book yet and not quite halfway with my 3rd pregnancy. My best friend sent it and I've finally started reading it. I guess I wasn't that moved by the title because I don't really have any aspirations of a "painless childbirth" (yes, I am striving for a natural labor, which I have been fortunate to have experienced thus far). It is new-agey at points (but I'm not one to mind) and I am just blown away about 100 pages in. It is written by a doula and really reads more of like a psychotherapy book. It's very empowering. If you have any past birth trauma of your own birth or your earlier children, I would highly recommend it. It does alot with releasing fears and unconscious pacts you make with yourself. I love the section I just read about not exerting your will but your willingness and filling a tense situation with love instead of control. It's so good and touches on so much regular "life" stuff, I told my husband it was now on his required reading list for his own benefit"

From the Back Cover:

Painless Childbirth is a guide through the miracle of pregnancy and birth. It explores the relationship between the nine months of fetal development in the womb, and the nine fundamental human rights. Mothers are encouraged to consciously participate in the miracle of creation, sharing with their children a painless birth.
So, the "painless" part. Tornetta expresses this best herself when she says, "To achieve a painless childbirth, you must experience pain--not necessarily physical pain, but the pain of change, of letting go of old habits, beliefs, resentments, behaviors and attitudes." And, no, this is not another "method" book, but an inspirational guide through the journey that is pregnancy, labor and birth.
