Blog spotlight: Pushed birth

The Painful Truth About Childbirth and Modern Maternity Care

Jennifer Block, author of Pushed: The Painful Truth About Childbirth and Modern Maternity Care has a new (started in August) blog about childbirth. Check it out at pushedbirth.com. She defines a pushed birth as:

A pushed birth is one that is induced, sped up, and/or heavily medicated for no good reason, and all too often concludes with surgery, invasive instruments, an episiotomy, or a bad vaginal tear — outcomes you don’t want.

Cool stuff. She has a sweet map on the site showing in what states midwifery is legal and illegal.
