Giving Birth: Childbearing in America Today.

Based on interviews with obstetricians, midwives and birthing mothers themselves, this look at the ways society has defined the birth process suggests how individual women find different experiences that suit their own physical and emotional needs.

Beautiflly written...I enthusiastically recommend this book to parents and professional readers.
