GIVE YOUR BABY THE BEST START IN LIFE In my years of experience, I have developed a holistic way of assisting couples with their pregnancies. My treatments and advice combine Eastern and Western medical knowledge as well as traditional and complementary health techniques. With this in mind, I have formulated an 'A to Z' with solutions for common pregnancy complaints and some fundamental pregnancy and childbirth information. This book will help you make informed choices, allowing you to play an active role in your pregnancy and labour. It is packed with wonderful self-help advice, is easy to use, and is a vital resource for both pregnant women and their caregivers. Proceeds from this book are going towards financing a clinic for pregnant mothers and young babies in rural South Africa. This will create a place where rural women can receive essential advice and support for healthier pregnancies and safer childbirth.
Technology has come to dominate the modern experience of pregnancy and childbirth, but instead of empowering pregnant women, technology has been used to identify the foetus as a second patient characterised as a distinct entity with its own needs and interests. Often, foetal and the woman's interests will be aligned, though in legal and medical discourses the two 'patients' are frequently framed as antagonists with conflicting interests. This book focuses upon the permissibility of encroachment on the pregnant woman's autonomy in the interests of the foetus. Drawing on the law in England & Wales, the United States of America and Germany, Samantha Halliday focuses on the tension between a pregnant woman's autonomy and medical actions taken to protect the foetus, addressing circumstances in which courts have declared medical treatment lawful in the face of the pregnant woman's refusal of consent. As a work which calls into question the understanding of autonomy in prenatal medical care, this book will be of great use and interest to students, researchers and practitioners in medical law, comparative law, bioethics, and human rights.
