March 6, 2011, WORD Bookstore, Birthday Presence, and Choices in Childbirth are cosponsoring an event for Ina May Gaskin. Gaskin’s new book, Birth Matters: How What We Don’t Know About Nature, Bodies, and Surgery Can Hurt Us. 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-medicalization of birth—which has lead to nearly a third of hospital births in America to be cesarean sections—and renew confidence in a woman’s natural ability to birth.
