Closely associated with pregnancy and childbirth are a wide range of complex psychological factors. These can affect both the parents and other family members, as well as health care professionals and society in general.;By drawing on extensive research and clinical findings, this book provides a comprehensive overview of the major psychological changes and challenges which may be experienced during pregnancy, childbirth and parenting. From conception to child development, the book offers a practical and supportive interpretation of the theoretical basis of the psychological issues involved in procreation.;The opening chapters consider a range of applied approaches to childbirth and pregnancy, recognizing the relevance of these issues to health care professionals. The author goes on to explain how these theories can be applied to practice, thus providing an insight into a range of experiences. The inclusion of quotations from women on their own experiences emphasizes the woman's view and highlights the major themes of communication, therapeutic support and flexibility throughout the childbearing period.;The book covers all facets of pregnancy and parenting, from routine antenatal care, to more unusual circumstances, such as baby snatching, bereavement, suicide and mental health problems.
