Birth – Then and Now

We are now in a time where the majority of births are medicalized. They are often induced (synthetically started) and we have gone so far beyond where the medical system helps the natural system that we don’t believe the natural system even exists. It wasn’t until Ricki Lakes’ The Business of Being Born that released in 2008 that families started to realize that a natural and very different method of birth did exist, and this was often not in a hospital setting. Even though the home birth rates did increase since this new natural birth movement, they still only account for less than 1% of births in the US.
