PODCAST: Is ‘natural’ better when it comes to birth? An interview with Dr. Amy Tuteur

In this episode we continue to explore the natural birth movement and the debate around medicalized birth vs so-called “natural birth.”

On the last show I spoke with Ness Fraser, a doula and reproductive rights activist from Ontario. This week we hear from Dr. Amy Tuteur, an obstetrician gynecologist, graduate of Harvard and the Boston University School of Medicine, a former clinical instructor at Harvard Medical School, and the author of How Your Baby is Born.  She blogs about parenting, pseudoscience, homebirth, natural childbirth, and vaccine rejectionism at The Skeptical OB.
