Ok please, everyone who is not pregnant but very fond of birth stories, don't get deceived by the title, this isn't the book for you...and if you're like me, a young 20 yr old lady who loves watching birth documentaries, please..this book won't tell lovely stories, it will scare the daylights out of everyone. All it shows are early c sections, yikes, gross, and a modern c section where a lady pukes on the table, and it is just full of non sense, as if saying that kids born under the help of pain relief won't be healthy, don't waste your time, also people who are expecting, don't read this.. Hospitals in canada won't do evil to you, as depicted in this book

Loved this book. It gives great accounts on how the world changed and how the birthing rituals changed with it. Something all women who have or are going to have a child, should read! I couldn't put it down. It gives great references and is VERY well researched. A great read for anybody wanting to learn more about how we manage through birth and how all the mumble gumble got thrown into the mix!

I really enjoyed this book. Like any good history book, it puts our modern practices into context. It was a fun read.
