Ina May in the Sun

The Sun Magazine has a fantastic article in their current issue (Jan. 2012) interviewing Ina May, who’s recently come out with a new book Birth Matters: A Midwife’s Manifesta, about the medicalization of birth.   While the online version of the article is truncated, it’s still a fascinating read, complete with the history of how and why vaginal breech births fell out of practice (as dictated by insurance companies, no less!  I had no idea!).  Nothing earth shattering, but Ina May is always concise and insightful, and always, always a good read.  Enjoy!
