WIN one of five copies of Childbirth and the evolution of homo sapiens

 
This second edition of Michel Odent’s book, formerly titled Childbirth and the future of homo sapiens, has been updated due to advances 
in science.  
 
The period surrounding birth is a phase of modern life that has been dramatically altered in recent decades, and emerging scientific disciplines have shown that this short period is critical in the formation of human beings. Former obstetrician and revolutionary childbirth pioneer Michel Odent believes that these are two good reasons to raise questions about the way babies are born, and the consequences this may have for the evolution of homo sapiens.
 
Obstetric practice is generally evaluated in the short term; this book encourages the reader to think about modes of birth in the long term, and to consider the impact they have on our species and its evolution. It is a readable, yet thought-provoking book, which will give anyone interested in evolution and the future of homo sapiens much new material to consider.
