Run Like a Mother: How to Get Moving- and Not Lose Your Job, Family, or Sanity
Run Like a Mother
How to Get Moving- and Not Lose Your Job, Family, or Sanity
Paperback      ISBN: 0740785354
In Run Like a Mother, authors Dimity McDowell Davis and Sarah Bowen Shea offer both inspirational advice and practical strategies to help multitasking women make running part of their busy lives. From their own personal experiences described in the book, the authors understand the various external and internal forces in everyday life that can unintentionally keep a wife–mother–working woman from lacing up her shoes and going for a run. Run Like a Mother is driven by their own running expertise and real-world experiences to assure today’s woman that she can be a runner. The book is essentially a down-to-earth, encouraging conversation with the reader on all things running, with the overall goal of strengthening a woman’s inner athlete. Answering questions not addressed by other running books, Run Like a Mother covers topics like: how to find the time between conference calls to get out for a run, how to convince your husband that he should take care of the kids on Saturday mornings so you can train (and not feel guilty about doing it), how running can help post-partum depression, how to actually believe you can run even if you were the slowest kid in the class, how to deal with lulls in energy and motivation when you’ve been up with a sick kid for four nights straight, and much much more.Of course, real achievement is a healthy mix of inspiration and perspiration, which is why the authors have grounded Run Like a Mother in a host of practical tips on shoes, training, racing, nutrition, and injuries, all designed to help women balance running with their professional and personal lives.

The Art of Giving Birth: With Chanting, Breathing, and Movement
The Art of Giving Birth
With Chanting, Breathing, and Movement
Paperback      ISBN: 1594772762
A guide to help women find the joy and confidence needed for successful childbirth • Provides breathing and vocalizing exercises for use during pregnancy and labor • Contains inspiring stories from women who successfully applied these techniques • Includes a 26-minute CD of tambura music to accompany the singing exercises Giving birth is a veritable “explosion” of joy. The baby arrives when the life force surges up so strongly in the woman that it breaks all limitations in order to spring forth. But in our modern culture, women often do not feel empowered to give birth by themselves. They want the “experts” to handle the birth for them, out of fear of the pain or the possible safety risks to them or the baby. Dr. Frédérick Leboyer, author of the groundbreaking book Birth without Violence, which looks at birth from the baby’s point of view, now explores the birth process from the mother’s perspective. Through the heartfelt letters of women sharing their experiences, which are accompanied by his advice and commentary, he reveals how women can develop the skills needed to create a successful and joyful birth. Dr. Leboyer stresses that proper breathing is the most important component for women going through childbirth. The breathing should come from the lower belly and the exhalation should be accompanied by a musical tone. Without this musical dimension, breathing is merely a physical exercise. Dr. Leboyer found that by using the music of the tambura, an Indian stringed instrument whose tones represent the embodiment of universal harmony, women are transported to a place of inner peace. The Art of Giving Birth includes breathing and singing exercises and gentle movements to be practiced throughout pregnancy and during labor. Also included is a 26-minute CD of tambura music to accompany the exercises.
