Childbirth: a matter of magic, mystery, and misunderstanding. For most of human history this critical moment of every life was shrouded in secrecy—the domain of women and (mostly) male doctors, very often to the detriment of the health of the mother, the child, or both.
In Get Me Out: A History of Childbirth from the Garden of Eden to the Sperm Bank, medical journalist Randi Hutter Epstein, M.D., serves as midwife to a history of how exactly do we get babies out of their mothers. Get Me Out is a celebration of life and human ingenuity as well as a medical history of how we got to where we are in reproductive knowledge and technology, and a hint at the future and its many challenges. You’ll find no misconceptions about conception here!
