In 1962, Jessica Mitford shocked the nation with The American Way of Death, her best-selling investigation of shady practices in the funeral business. Now she turns her penetrating gaze to the opposite extreme of human experience.

Mitford examines conventional and alternative birth methods, public-health programs, the costs of having a child, and much more. Her inescapable conclusion - that the American way of birth is more a product of greed and political expediency than of concern for mothers and babies - will revolutionize the way we think about a universal rite of passage.
