Pushing for Midwives

Where and how we give birth is often the first - and sometimes most controversial - choice we make as mothers. This week TMM talks to Christa Craven about her book Pushing for Midwives: Homebirth Mothers and the Reproductive Rights Movement. Christa Craven is a professor of anthropology with a focus on women, gender, and sexuality studies. Her book examines the economic and political relevance of the reproductive rights movement for scholars, activists, and parents. Listen now. Want to talk about it? Check out the forums.
