Hey everyone! I'm 31 weeks pregnant and my husband is Chilean. He speaks and reads some English, but obviously not as well or as quickly as he speaks and reads in Spanish. I really want him to be involved in the labor and delivery of our daughter--and he's very eager to understand the whole process and to participate in encouraging a natural birth. We're currently taking Childbrith Education classes but unfortunately the classes taught in Spanish don't begin until January and I'm due Jan 28th.

I was just wondering if any Spanish speakers know of a good guidebook similar to The Birth Partner but in Spanish. I've tried looking for The Birth Partner in translation but haven't had any luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Married 12/08 to Chilean DH and mama to DD 2/2/10. We're a bilingual home and we familybed1.gif and toddler.gif

 

Expecting #2 in late June!

Kitzenger's big book on childbirth is available in Spanish and has a good section for the birth partner:

El Nuevo Gran Libro del Embarazo y del Parto

otherwise, the website Crianza Natural suggests a number of other books

I haven't read it though, but I second the advice given above. Look at Crianza Natural

I think the "Business of Beign Born" (movie) has a Spanish Translation. If that can help a little bit.
We are chilean too.
