Helping to chart the expanding territory of prenatal and perinatal psychology since 1985 has been the mission of our Association journal. Every step of the way has been made possible by the vision and ingenuity of the editors and the dedication of the supporting staff working closely with a host of authors contributing to 25 volumes—that's 100 issues. Together we celebrate the 25th year of publication since Thomas Verny founded the Journal.
Get Me Out: A History of Childbirth from the Garden of Eden to the Sperm Bank, Randi Hutter Epstein, M.D. (2010). NY, WW Norton and Company. 302 pages, ISBN 978-0-393-06458-2
I heard this author speaking about her new book on NPR radio's Fresh Air program in early February, 2010, and stopped the car to listen to the remainder of the show. A few weeks later, I was given the book as a gift by my daughter's boyfriend who knows of my PPN interest. It is a great read regardless of your orientation to PPN, childbirth, fertility, and health.
