Podcast: How can you avoid getting “pushed” into a birth you don’t want?

We’re very pleased to share a podcast interview with Jennifer Block, the author of Pushed: The Painful Truth about Modern Maternity Care.

Pushed shines a bright light on the state of maternity care in the U.S., from record-high induction and cesarean rates, to the legal obstacles to midwifery.  Whether you’re expecting a baby or want to advocate for change, you’ll want to read this book.

Tanya Lieberman spoke with Jennifer about the ways in which moms are ‘pushed’ or denied care, the projection that the cesarean rate will hit 50%, recent changes in recommendations for VBAC, and what mothers can do to avoid getting ‘pushed.’
