Sheila Kitzinger, the high priestess of natural childbirth, has died at the age of 86. She could reasonably be said to have done more than anyone else to change attitudes to childbirth in the past 50 years.

Previous books on grandmothering have been either scholarly studies or jokey books intended to humor grannies along. Now comes a book that offers grandmothers what they really want - an accessible guide through a major life passage, based on extensive research among grandmothers in the United States, Britain, Australia, and many other countries.In twelve accessible but intelligent chapters we learn аbout: Images of the Grandmother, Our Own Grandmothers, Grandmothers in Traditional Cultures and in Myths, The Eager-to-Be Grandmother, The Reluctant Grandmother, Birth, Granny Trouble, Feeling Close - Mothers, Daughters and Daughters-in-Law, A Learning Experience, and Grandmother Skills.For many women, becoming a grandmother is a bigger milestone than reaching menopause, and often, these two events occur at the same time, bringing with them many changes. Sheila Kitzinger addresses her subject with great sensitivity and honesty, recognizing that accompanying the intense pleasure of becoming a grandmother are deep anxieties as well.Becoming a Grandmother explores the ways in which grandmothers can find satisfaction in their new roles, achieve a better understanding of family tensions, communicate more effectively with their daughters and daughters-in-law, provide emotional support, and, most importantly, enjoy their grandchildren.

A book on every aspect of becoming a grandmother. Very negative in setting. Mostly about not wanting to be a grandmother, not wanting to fulfill a role in a child's life, being too busy in one's own ambitions. I was seeking a book on embracing the role, not escaping.

I gave this book to my mother when I found out I was pregnant. I admit to reading most of it before handing it on. I now wish I'd bought two copies -- one for my mother-in-law. It is a great account of all the doubts and feelings that may occur when a mother finds out her offspring is going to become a parent. The author mainly deals with a mother-daughter relationship, rather than a mother-son relationship. The author is British, and I related well to the content. It was reassuring to know that my mother was probably experiencing doubts and having to address issues to do with her growing older. I enjoyed the idea that a new bond is created between mother and daughter because they share childbirth in common. My mum felt that it was a lot less threatening to receive this as a gift, than to be given a How to Grandparent book which is really a slap in the face to say 'You don't know what to do!'. A good narrative which should be taken in the light in which it was written -- not a how-to book, but a food-for-thought book which might reassure that its okay to have doubts about impending grandparent-hood.

This is a classic book full of thoughtful reflection. You can't beat it for the price.
