Written by Tina Cassidy, Birth: A History is an enlightening and fascinating study of childbirth that looks at the theories, fads, methods and controversies that have surrounded this natural process throughout the ages. From evolution to the epidural and beyond, Tina Cassidy presents a fascinating and impeccably researched history of how and why we are born the way we are.
Tina came to write Birth: A History after the difficult delivery of her second son, George, by emergency caesarean section. This led her to ask - Were the doctors right? Did she have to go through what she did? Her journalistic instinct urged her to set out on a quest to find some answers.
As a result in Birth: A History, Tina discusses everything from why birth can be so difficult and whether men should be allowed to be present at deliveries to the phenomenon of 'too posh to push', whether a home or hospital birth is safer and much more. Full of quirky details, humorous tales and startling facts, Birth : A History is a must-have for anyone starting a family.
