About this Item: Pinter Martin Ltd., United Kingdom, 2006. CD-Audio. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New. Dr Grantly Dick-Read died on 11 June 1959. His teaching, however, gains a growing recognition even though others are putting their names to his theories and practices. The delivery on this recording was not in fact an easy one, as the baby was not fully rotated. The record, therefore, not only justifies Dick-Read s teaching but is also a tribute to his own skill as a gynaecologist. The following sleeve notes were written a month after the recording. When my wife informed me that she was going to have a baby, I think my reactions were typical of most husbands. I was delighted, for we both wanted to start a family, but I was also anxious. My knowledge of childbirth was limited. I had heard that pregnancy could be difficult , that labour itself, if not actually dangerous, meant many hours of suffering either nobly endured or alleviated with anaesthesia. My wife, however, insisted that I read Childbirth without Fear by Dr Grantly Dick-Read. There I learned the simple tenets upon which his teaching is founded. The fear of childbirth can be overcome by simple instruction in the truth of natural processes.The methods by which a woman can help herself and not cause her own distress - correct breathing and relaxation for use during pregnancy and labour were explained. Simple exercises (requiring only a few minutes per day) to aid the general fitness for the birth of the baby were described. Dr Dick-Read stressed that even more important than the removal of pain is the spiritual joy the mother experiences when she sees her baby into the world, a joy, which transcends the moment of birth, and has a lasting influence on the family unity. This, as Dr Dick-Read says, is the experience, which is destroyed when the sensations of birth are removed or disturbed by interference. My wife decided that she would prepare for natural childbirth. It was at this point that as a recording executive I became involved professionally. My wife volunteered to have her labour recorded and Dr Dick-Read agreed to supervise her delivery and give a commentary as the labour proceeded. In effect, we had provided Dr Dick-Read with a test of some severity. We were not asking him to choose the best result from, say, twelve cases. The patient was not even selected by him.She was having her first baby and she was over thirty. Mrs Dick-Read began the antenatal preparation, as described in the book Antenatal Illustrated . The voices you will hear on this record are those of Dr Dick-Read, Mrs Dick-Read, the expectant mother and, towards the end of the record, a woman doctor in general practice who assisted Dr Dick-Read. Another doctor who was present primarily as an interested observer was also skilled in the administration of pain relief should the patient have desired it. A bedroom in Dr Dick-Read s house in Petersfield had been equipped with a labour bed. Trilene and Pethedine were available; for, contrary to some reports, a strongly maintained principle of Dr Dick-Read s teaching was that the patient should not be expected to suffer any unnecessary pain or discomfort. Three microphones were used. One was placed above the bed and used to pick up conversations between doctor and patient and also the atmosphere of the ward, which was calm and peaceful throughout. At each side of the bed we placed microphones for use when either Dr or Mrs Dick-Read wished to make any comment.I personally operated the recording equipment in an adjoining room during the confinement and can categorically state that at no time did I feel that my wife was asked to bear any severe discomfort. Even when owing to the incomplete rotation of the baby s head at the outlet, and in order to prevent unnecessarily prolonging the final stage of labour, a small incision was made, my wife did not feel this and did not at any stage request anaesthetic. That she was asked to do a lot of very hard work she will be the first to admit. But the joy of the birth itself is unforgettab. Seller Inventory # AAO9781905177080

About this Item: Hoffmann und Campe, Hamburg, 1964. OPbd. 55 S.m. Abb. Grantly Dick-Read (* 26. Januar 1890 in Beccles, Norfolk; 11. Juni 1959 in Wroxam, Norfolk) war ein englischer Arzt, der sich für die natürliche Geburt einsetzte. Read entwickelte das später nach ihm Readsche Methode benannte System der präpartalen Psychoprophylaxe. Dabei wird durch seelische und körperliche Beeinflussung der werdenden Mutter der Geburtsschmerz herabgesetzt. Die Beeinflussung kann durch systematische gymnastische Entspannungs- und Lockerungsübungen, Aufklärung und Belehrung über das Geburtsgeschehen oder Ausschaltung der zu Verkrampfungen und Schmerzen führenden Geburtsangst erfolgen. Nach der Theorie von Dick-Read entstehen ein großer Teil von Angst und Schmerzen durch Erwartungen vor der Geburt. Er nannte dieses Phänomen Angst-Verkrampfungs-Schmerz-Syndrom (Fear-Tension-Pain-Syndrom). Dick-Read lehnte Schmerzmittel nicht grundsätzlich ab, da sich auch Ängste nicht unbedingt immer abbauen lassen. Dick-Read hatte ein Schlüsselerlebnis bei einer Geburtshilfe in den 1920er Jahren, als eine Frau auf die Verabreichung von Chloroform verzichten wollte, um ihre Geburt bewusst miterleben zu können. Diese Geburt verlief ohne Probleme. Nach weiteren Untersuchungen veröffentlichte Dick-Read schließlich im Jahre 1933 sein Buch Childbirth Without Fear. Er schrieb darin In no other animal species is the process of birth apparently associated with any suffering, pain or agony, except where pathology exists or in an unnatural state, such as captivity. Übersetzt also Bei keiner anderen Tierart wird der Geburtsvorgang offensichtlich mit Leiden, Schmerz oder Qualen verbunden, es sei denn es bestünden Krankheiten oder, in einem unnatürlichen Fall, wie zum Beispiel Gefangenschaft. In den späten 1940er und frühen 1950er Jahren fanden seine Ideen in den USA Gehör.(wikipedia) Weitere Informationen zu unserem Charity-Projekt finden Sie unter www phoenix-antiquariat de Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 500.

About this Item: Boydell Brewer Ltd, United States, 1998. Hardback. Condition: New. Translated ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. For pregnant women in the 1930s and 1940s Dr. Grantly Dick-Read (1890-1959) proposed natural childbirth as the normal way to have babies, making drugs, instruments and hospitalization unnecessary. His book Childbirth without Fear, first published in 1933, spoke of the joys of natural childbirth; women from around the world wrote long, detailed, and poignant letters in response, describing their own experiences in giving birth. This edited collection of the correspondence affords a rare look at childbirth experiences in the hospitals and birthing centers in post-war America and Britain from the perspective of the patient, as women discuss the way they were viewed by society, by hospitals, and by physicians and nurses, and their own feelings on childbirth; overall, the book provides an important opportunity to evaluate the treatment of women in the 1940s and 1950s, the generation who gave birth to the so-called baby boomers.
