Helpful Score: 1
This book is full of a wealth of information, as it goes through the centuries of change and trends surrounding the birthing process from conception to postnatal care. It is well-rounded, and shows a wide variety of perspectives from one radical POV to another, and also taking the time to cover all of the in between. I have strongly considered keeping this book to myself, but I think it's knowledge it worth sharing.

Well researched and well-written but a little but yawn inducing at times.

This is a wonderful review of the history of "birth" in our country. This includes medical practices from homebirth to medicated hospital birth.
