In this last chapter we hear the second half of the radio program Birth. A documentary about the practices and perceptions of birth in America.
Starting with early perceptions, we move through the process of birth beginning before labor, continuing during labor, and following the actual event. With a multiplicity of voices woven with sound we examine the process of birth from an emotional, physical and philosophical perspective.
Later in our program we will be joined by Alyse and John and hear their birth story. We've followed them through their last few weeks of pregnancy.
Their baby was born last week! We will get the low down on birth in a hospital by a couple who still has the memory fresh in their mind. We will learn about the realities of hospital protocol and how parents can fight for what they want/need. As their doula this is an exciting opportunity to learn. As a person this is an honor.
