Who's Having This Baby?
Drawing on a richly diverse collection of more than 130 interviews, this book brings to life
the nagging question of just who is having this baby, anyway? Though the birthing
process is framed and handled differently from country to country, even from region to
region, in America the prevailing norm situates birth in hospitals, managed by doctors and
nurses who rely on a variety of technologies to assist them. Medical institution, rather
than women, control the birth experience.
