The Politics of Birth challenges readers to open their eyes, examine current practice, analyze the birth culture, and stay open to innovative ways of creating more humane environments for giving birth and becoming families. This deeply thoughtful, eminently practical book, full of intriguing surprises, is a welcome addition to my library
