Birth without Violence revolutionised the way we perceive the process of birth, urging us to consider birth from the infant's point of view. Why must a child emerge from the quiet darkness of the womb into a blaze of blinding light and loud voices? Why must an infant take its first breath in terror, hanging upside down as its vulnerable spine is jerked straight?

Why must the infant be separated from its mother after spending nine months inside her nourishing body? It was the first book to express what mothers have always known: babies are born complete human beings with the ability to experience a full range of emotions.

Frédérick Leboyer, Who Saw Childbirth Through Baby’s Eyes, Dies at 98

He is best known for his book, Birth Without Violence, which popularized gentle birthing techniques, in particular, the practice of immersing newborn infants in a small tub of warm water — known as a "Leboyer bath" — to help ease the transition from the womb to the outside world. He also advocated low lighting and quiet in a warm room to limit the supposed shock of birth,[Reynolds, Concise Encyclopedia of Special Education, ] and that a newborn be laid on its mother's stomach and allowed to bond, instead of being taken away for tests. Leboyer graduated from the University of Paris School of Medicine. His own birth was traumatic and without anesthetics available, his mother had to be pinned down. Leboyer attributes his interest in birth to this experience.

Perhaps, he mused, those most closely involved in childbirth — obstetricians, midwives, even parents — were ignoring the person who mattered most of all. Everyone was smiling: but at the centre of the picture was a face that, far from being joyful, seemed contorted in pain and agony. The child? You hadn't even noticed the child, had you? Thirty seven years on from the publication of Birth Without Violence, you might imagine that its author, Frederick Leboyer, who is now 93, had moved on to new concerns. Not a bit of it: his book is being republished this month and, like all true revolutionaries, age has not withered him.

Skip navigation. In Birth without Violence , French obstetrician Frederick Leboyer describes in poetic form the possible perceptions and feelings of embryos and fetuses before, during, and after birth. In the opening of his book, Leboyer asks readers to consider how a baby feels during its birth and whether indeed the baby has feelings at all. He addresses concepts such as consciousness and personhood and asks when these are considered to become part of a human life.
