The insatiably curious Randi Hutter Epstein journeys through history, fads, and fables, and to the fringe of science. Here is an entertaining must-read-an enlightening celebration of human life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[A] fascinating and powerful recounting of conception and childbirth." -- Science News
"Epstein's fine history of childbirth...carefully describes both the introduction and the progress of new methods and the mindsets that have generated, encouraged, accompanied and justified them." -- Boston Sunday Globe
"Randi Hutter Epstein's book is full of delightful-and sometimes disturbing-anecdotes." -- NPR
"A lively history...Randi Hutter Epstein injects new energy into the now-familiar story...Her book takes a kind of great-man-and not so great-man-approach to childbirth's history, focusing on some of the personalities who transformed it for better and for worse." -- Liza Mundy - Slate
