Advance Praise for Attending Your Grandchild’s Birth

“I recommend this book to all grandparents and to present and future parents who would like their own parents to be part of the experience of a lifetime.”

Arthur Kornhaber, M. D. President & Founder, The Foundation for Grandparenting

 

· “.. the book is great. You’ve found a niche and filled it well. I really like the sections on acupressure and relaxation techniques, as well as (your comments about) being helpful and deferring to the father in most situations — really important. I think that everyone present in a delivery should educate themselves.”

Susan Taylor, M. D. UCLA Hospital, Santa Monica, CA

 

· “In Attending Your Grandchild’s Birth” author Carolynn Bauer Zorn gives grandparents sensible, step-by-step, concrete guidelines on how to participate in the birth and enhance the family experience at this special time. Written in an easy-to-read and sensitive manner the author ranges over a wide variety of subjects that inform, assist and instruct grandparents on how to be both witness and participant in the birth of their grandchild. Of special note is the author’s warm, loving advice on handling the birth of a stillborn child that I have not seen addressed elsewhere. I recommend this book to all grandparents and to present and future parents who would like their own parents to be part of the experience of a lifetime.”

· “As the mother of a “preemie” 24 years ago, and a recent grandmother, I very much enjoyed reading, Attending Your Grandchild’s Birth, and learning about the things I had missed. Now I understand how I could have been much more help and support for my daughter and daughter-in-law, if this book had been available to me earlier. I hope to have a chance at “grandmotherhood “again, and this time, I’ll be prepared.”

Charlotte Binder, Mother, Grandmother, Teacher, Ret. School Librarian
