Mama werden mit Hypnobirthing
Author: Bianca Maria Heinkel, Jhari Gerlind Kornetzky
Frauen sind dafür geschaffen, Babys auf die Welt zu bringen. Mit HypnoBirthing erfährt die Schwangere, wie sie den natürlichen Geburtsablauf mit Hilfe von Tiefenentspannung, Visualisierung, Atmung und Selbsthypnose unterstützen kann. Das neue HypnoBirthing bietet praktische, alltagstaugliche Übungen, mit denen Frauen sich alleine und gemeinsam mit ihrem Geburtsbegleiter auf eine selbstbestimmte, natürliche Geburt aus eigener Kraft vorbereiten kann. Das vorliegende Buch ist eine überarbeitete, dem europäischen Kulturkreis angepasste Version von HypnoBirthing, einem Konzept zur Geburtsvorbereitung für Paare, welches in den 1980er Jahren in den USA von Marie Mongan entwickelt wurde. Das neue HypnoBirthing 2.0 integriert die aktuellen Achtsamkeitskonzepte sowie lösungs- und ressourcenorientierte Ansätze und hypnosystemische Denkmodelle. Die Autorinnen bieten sowohl entsprechende Elternkurse als auch eine auf diesem Buch basierende neue Ausbildung zur HypnoBirthing-Kursleiterin an. Es ist ihnen ein Anliegen, zu der Entwicklung eines neuen Paradigmas von Geburt beizutragen.
HypnoBirthing® has gained momentum around the globe as a positive and empowering method of childbirth. Here's why: HypnoBirthing helps women to become empowered by developing an awareness of the instinctive birthing capability of their bodies. It greatly reduces the pain of labor and childbirth; frequently eliminates the need for drugs; reduces the need for caesarian surgery or other doctor-controlled birth interventions; and it also shortens birthing and recovery time, allowing for better and earlier bonding with the baby, which has been proven to be vital to the mother-child bond. What's more, parents report that their infants sleep better and feed more easily when they haven't experienced birth trauma. HypnoBirthing founder Marie Mongan knows from her own four births that it is not necessary for childbirth to be a terribly painful experience. In this book she shows women how the Mongan Method works and how parents they can take control of the greatest and most important event of their lives. So, why is birth such a traumatic event for so many women? And why do more than 40% of births now end in caesarian section, the highest percentage in history? The answer is simple: because our culture teaches women to fear birth as a painful and unsettling experience. Fear causes three physical reactions in the body—tightening of the muscles, reduced blood flow to the birthing muscles, and the release of certain hormones—which increase the pain and discomfort of childbirth. This is not hocus-pocus this is science.

Now that you’ve bought an amazing new DSLR, you need a book that goes beyond the camera manual to teach you how to take great shots. That’s where Composition: From Snapshots to Great Shots, Second Edition, comes in, teaching you the fundamentals of composition—the creative arrangement of elements in the shot, and the way a viewer’s eye travels through an image—so you can get great shots no matter what gear you use. In this book, author and professional photographer Laurie Excell starts with the basics of composition—such as the popular rule of thirds—and illustrates how elements like color, shape, angles, and contrast work to create compelling images. In the process, she covers all key camera features that affect composition (regardless of what type of DSLR you have), including the ability to freeze and convey motion depending on what shutter speed you choose, and the correlation between aperture and depth of field. In addition to dozens of brand-new images and more in-depth coverage on topics such as patterns and textures and arranging elements in a frame, this revised edition features several completely new chapters. These will include a chapter of step-by-step examples that highlight the compositional technique used to get just the right shot; a new chapter on black-and-white photography; and a chapter on what to do after the shot—enhancing and editing the images in post-processing. Beautifully illustrated with large, vibrant photos, this book will help you bring your own unique artistic expression to any situation whether taking portraits, action shots, landscapes, or events, teaching you how to take control of your photography to get the image you want every time you pick up the camera.
