“Pushed” by Jennifer Block

Mahalo nui Piper for lending me this book…I can’t believe it took me so long to get a hold of it.
Talk about rekindling the flame to get the word out more about the state of our maternity care system.
From the very beginning it talks about the history of Obstetrics in the U.S. and parts of the world and basically how women have been guinea pigs to new inventions (that don’t get FDA approval) and drugs/meds that haven’t had careful long term effect studies to prove their safety!
If you are pregnant, thinking about getting pregnant, are a woman or know one…you NEED to read this book
