Pushed: The Painful Truth about Childbirth and Modern Maternity Care by Jennifer Block
Pushed: The Painful Truth about Childbirth and Modern Maternity Care

greggs, June 16, 2007

A must read for All Women Concerned about how they will be treated when they become pregnant.
Also a must read book by all Women in New Jersey and all women in the entire United States that plan to or have given birth. All Health Reporters should read this book prior to attempting to print one more lie about Maternity Care in the United States. All those that have been attempting to address these issues will finally be pleased to have the past several years Escalating Cesarean Crisis explained to the masses, issues that Midwives, Doulas, Equal Rights Activists, Students of Women's Studies, Reproductive Rights Activists in the United States- have known about and have not had such a well done book as Jennifer Block's - "PUSHED" available until now, this book gives a great overview of the Cesarean Surge that women in the United States have experienced.
Get ready for the next wave - you must read this book!
Women are no longer going to be compliant patients they are going to be hiring Lawyers, joining class action suits for unnecessary surgery and getting second opinions prior to their care providers scheduling them at 37 & 38 weeks, They will be actively looking for and hiring Obstetricians that have HIGH Ethics and LOW cesarean rates. They will be questioning Hospital Administrators Policies and their Politicians lack of action to address this medical crisis in the country.
Well Done Jennifer. I can not wait to read your next book.
Signing this endorsement of your book
- Grateful New Jersey Girl.
