The History of Childbirth

Today NPR featured the author of a new book: Get Me Out: A History of Childbirth from the Garden of Eden to the Sperm Bank. Randi Hutter Epstein, a medical doctor and journalist, says that people have driven themselves crazy over childbirth over "hundreds and hundreds of years." And that while we've made advances, "someone is going to be laughing at us probably 50 years from now." Check out the full story and an excerpt from her book. I can't wait to pick up this book; looks like a must read!
