Book Giveaway on www.historyandwomen.com

There's a terrific book giveaway starting on January 18th and continuing until January 19th.

We are giving away two copies of the book - Get Me Out: A History of Childbirth from the Garden of Eden to the Sperm Bank.

This is a fascinating book that describes the sometimes laughable, sometimes horrific practices for childbirth methods from earliest times to modern day.  I promise you that you'll learn lots and be surprised or even shocked.  It's a fabulous book written by Dr. Randi Hutter Epstein and well worth having on your bookshelf.

One book will be given away to a Canadian resident and one for a U.S. Resident.

Entering is simple: 

Visit History and Women:

1.  Leave a comment on the 18th or 19th of January about the book or the author.
2.  Include your email address.  This is most  the most important step.  Without it, we can't contact you.
3.  Be a follower of this blog.  And we do check... 
4.  Be sure to state whether you're either Canadian or American

Here's a video presention by Dr. Epstein called "A Romp through Childbirth History."  It is a talk given on the upper west side of New York City, December, 2010 and great fun to listen to. 

Enjoy and I do hope you'll stop by and visit History and Women on the 18th and 19th.
