This lesson is a historic review of the rise of obstetric gynecology and the medicalization of birth. It is common knowledge that women used to give birth at home, surrounded by other women in their community and being cared for by the town midwife. We can find references to this in the bible, in western movies, in novels and poems. What most of your clients do not know is how did we ended up giving birth in hospitals, and most of them think it is just because it is safer for women and babies. Pain, Fear and the medicalization of birth will inspire you and strengthen you as a woman and as a birth doula and coach. It will provide you with the information you need in order to conduct a knowledgeable discussion with your clients when they are debating where to give birth.
