Just OBG: Spanish for the Perinatal Professional
 
As a practicing midwife, I know the frustration of trying to communicate with Spanish-speaking only clients, using my meager foreign language skills. Translators are expensive, bilingual employees are difficult to come by, and translation phones are costly and not always practical. For years, I collected medical Spanish books, only to be disappointed every time at their cursory coverage of obstetric Spanish, and how difficult it was to find the information I needed in a hurry.
 
Just OBG: Spanish for the Perinatal Professional represents a collaborative effort between a certified nurse-midwife and a native Spanish-speaker. Structured to follow the normal course of obstetric care, the guide walks you through each step of the perinatal year. The guide is organized in a logical fashion, beginning with the initial antepartum intake, and progressing through return antepartum visits, labor, birth, and finally postpartum and breastfeeding.  In addition to normal home birth or birth center care, the book also includes information for hospitalization in obstetric triage, as an inpatient, and for medical procedures and referrals.
 
Each section is easily used by the novice Spanish speaker, as well as more experienced speakers who simply need a comprehensive reference to obstetric Spanish. The 48-page book is available as an instant download, and prints on standard 8 1/2 x 11 inch paper, making it the perfect size to fit into a standard 3-ring notebook.

This is a pregnancy and birth plan guide unlike any other.  Beginning with pre-conception and continuing through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum, the planner guides you through the many tests and procedures that are routine in modern obstetrics.  Evidence for or against each test or procedure is examined and  recommendations are made for alternative options.

The planner also discusses essential questions to ask a potential provider; ways to avoid a c-section; and inside hints on how to keep your birth plan from being derailed. Throughout, you will be reassured by the calm, common-sense tone and advice of the author, who is a midwife with 25 years experience.

One Birth Sense reader commented: “Wow! Amazing book. I bought it last night & stayed up late to read the whole thing. It’s a tremendous resource and I’m so very thankful that you took the time to put it all together. As a CBE, this will be an invaluable resource for me and I think I will add it to my “required reading” list for my clients. I’m re-reading it again today. Just fabulous! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!”
