Product description

Review

"Finally, a literate and well-informed history of childbirth... A liberating look at how assumptions have changed of what a good childbirth is supposed to be" (Naomi Wolf)

"Wonderful... Packed full of information, a brilliant mixture of ancient wisdom and modern science" (Kate Mosse)

"Cassidy is determined to wipe the Vaseline from the lens... There is a collective, willful amnesia about birth that has been begging for her clear-headed dissipation" (New York Times Book Review)

"A lively, engaging and often witty read; a quirky, eye-opening account of one of life's most elemental experiences" (Boston Globe)

"Fantastic... a darkly witty guide through the birthing hut" (New York Magazine)

Book Description

This page-turning and jaw-dropping history of childbirth is 'a wonder of a book... a must read for anyone who's ever been born' (Mary Roach).
