From a detailed look at what happens in the intense moments immediately preceding and following birth, to an eye-popping history of painkillers, birthing methods and infant resuscitation, Sloan shows how millions of years of human history are encapsulated in one day – in the universal experience of childbirth and the first day of life. Part memoir, part narrative, part science and history, this audio focuses on both the biology and wonder of human birth. This title combines history, biology, and culture with humor, compassion, and real-life anecdotes and gives equal emphasis to the clinical and emotional aspects of this timeless experience.
