Summary
  • (Producer) Presents a medical history of childbirth from ancient times to the present, contrasting methods and beliefs of the past with today's obstetrics
  • "Due to ignorance, politics, and misused technologies, childbirth until very recently was often deadly to mother and child. This program presents a medical history of childbirth from ancient times to the present, contrasting methods and beliefs of the past with today's obstetrics. Along with commentary from obstetricians, medical historians, and evolutionary biologists, the program highlights dangers and advances in birthing through documentary clips, reenactments, archival material, computer graphics, and footage of several modern delivery techniques. Topics include caesarian section, fertility treatments, morning sickness, ultrasound, in utero surgical procedures, and the story of obstetrical forceps. Contains nudity associated with childbirth."--Container
