Few things are more profound or delightful than bringing new life into the world. Birth
traces this phenomenal, yet commonplace event, beginning with early perceptions about the process. This sound-rich program examines the birth process from multiple perspectives: emotional, physical and philosophical and features Tina Cassidy, author of Birth: A Surprising History of How We're Born.
Moving through time and from person to person, listeners discover how life stories, history, biology, media, anthropology and medicine merge and culminate in the actual birthing process.
