Summary
Making and having babies--what it takes to get pregnant, stay pregnant, and deliver--has mystified women and men for the whole of human history. Over the last one hundred years, depending on the latest prevailing advice, women have taken morphine, practiced Lamaze, relied on ultrasound images, sampled fertility drugs, and shopped at sperm banks. Here, the insatiably curious Randi Hutter Epstein journeys through history, fads, and fables, and to the fringe of science, where audacious researchers have gone to extreme measures to get healthy babies out of mothers. The result is an entertaining and enlightening celebration of human life.--From publisher description
