A Midwife's ManifestaBook - 2011 | Seven Stories Press 1st ed.
Renowned for her practice's exemplary results and low intervention rates, Ina May Gaskin has gained international notoriety for promoting natural birth. She is a much-beloved leader of a movement that seeks to stop the hyper-medicalisation of birth which has lead an increase in cesarean sections and renew confidence in a woman's natural ability to birth. Upbeat and informative, Gaskin asserts that the way in which women become mothers is a women's rights issue the act that most powerfully exhibits what it is to be instinctually human.
