Childbearing is more than pregnancy and labor. It is the having and not having of children. It is a profound event in the lives of families-and in the lives and bodies of women. The feminist movement and the development of feminist studies have helped to rehumanize the subject of childbearing by removing it from the remote environment of institutionalized medicine. The multi-disciplinary Encyclopedia of Childbearing is a major contribution to this new accessibility.
