The Birth of Love

Recommended for: moms who have been there and done that
I can't recall how I came across this book but I'm glad I did. 4 stories all involving childbirth and/or love loss. The story of a Dr. in 19th century Vienna that goes insane while trying to convince doctors to wash their hands before examining women during child birth; the modern day reclusive author who is writing the story of this Viennese doctor; the modern day woman in London giving birth at home and finally the future story, where there are only egg and sperm donors. the stories only intersect on a very delicate level at most but they do fine independently. All the stories are very strong.
