Lying-In: A History of Childbirth in America, Expanded Edition
What other book is there like this one? I don't know of any scholarly books objectively analyzing the history of childbirth in American from colonial times to the present. Especially valuable is the chapter on twilight sleep and its feminist foundations. Any birth professional or paraprofessional should read this and KNOW it.
