Editorial Reviews

Review

“Pregnancy and childbirth are wildly vulnerable times, and one is desperate to put one's faith in the doctor. Jennifer Margulis reveals why that trust is sometimes misplaced, and helps us to make wise choices when the stakes are high. This is a must-read book for parents and parents-to-be,and for the medical professionals who care for us.” -- Harriet Lerner, Ph.D. ― author of The Dance of Anger and Marriage Rules

"A new mother's first instinct is to protect her newborn. But how can she best do that in a consumer culture so focused on its bottom line?
The Business of Baby exposes some hard and shocking facts about how even the most well-meaning American parents unwittingly buy into systems that do documented harm. Thought-provoking and exhaustively researched, this book is destined to inspire much-needed dialogue about the current American way of birthing and caring for our young." -- Hope Edelman ― bestselling author of Motherless Daughters

“Jennifer Margulis's searing and well-researched exposé is a must-read for expectant mothers. Whether she is discussing common obstetric practices, circumcision, vaccination, breastfeeding, bottlefeeding, diapering, or choosing a pediatrician, she points the way to rational, health-based decision-making.” -- Ina May Gaskin

“Worthy of close consideration by parents.” ―
Kirkus

"A must-read for expectant mothers... points the way to rational, health-based decision-making.” -- Ina May Gaskin, author of Spiritual Midwifery

“The most ambitious and best documented popular book about the American way of birth and infant care I have ever seen.” -- Norma Swenson, M.P.H. founding co-author, Our Bodies, Ourselves and lecturer, Harvard University, School of Public Health
