In Labor

PDF-file by Barbara Katz Rothman

In Labor PDF ebook download A comprehensive introductory work on the medicalization of childbirth in America.Rothman occasionally overstates her case, but she convincingly argues that hospital births in the U.S. are characterized by over-medicalization, routine and unnecessary technological interventions, inadequate attention to and support for the laboring mother, and a dramatic imbalance of power in favor of doctors (as opposed to mothers).In short, pregnancy and childbirth are treated by medical professionals as a disease and a medical emergency, respectively.Definitely worth a read for couples who are expecting.
