    Ina May Gaskin on the Diane Rehm show

    July 26, 2011

    Listen to the audio interview here. Download the audio to your computer. Fetal monitors, forceps and medication have become commonplace in American delivery rooms. Now a third of American babies arrive by C-section. A new book examines the industry of delivering babies. The author - veteran midwife Ina May Gaskin - says a climate of fear has led some women to give up control of the birth process to the medical establishment. She advocates greater respect for women's bodies, wider acceptance of natural deliveries - and new efforts to reconcile modern life with a process as old as humanity itself. Ina May Gaskin talks about her "midwife's manifesta." Guest Ina May Gaskin is the founder and director of the Farm Midwifery Center in Tennessee; author of "Spiritual Midwifery" and "Ina May's Guide to Childbirth."
