About the Book

This edited volume explores the intersection of spirituality with childbirth from 1800 to the present day from a comparative perspective. It illustrates how over this time period in much of the world, traditional practices, home births, and midwives have been overshadowed and undermined by male dominated obstetrics, hospitalization, and ultimately the medicalization of the birthing process itself.
About the Author: Marianne Delaporte is professor of religious studies at Notre Dame de Namur University. Morag Martin is associate professor of history at the College of Brockport, SUNY.
