The question I will be answering is How has information in this book changed your own views on pregnancy and/or childbearing? My thoughts going into this book were that child birth used to be super dangerous because of the lack of knowledge but in reality women knew a lot of their body. What I thought... Continue Reading →
Say What You Mean -Karla.Ru

Breathing – Pattie A
As I continued to read and finish Get Me Out by Randi Hutter Epstein, my knowledge of a female pregnancy has expanded.

Mental – Pattie A.
I’ve seen and read many articles about the benefits of hospital births, but never have I been so upset as to why parents decide to have a child at the hospital. As I was reading part two of Get Me Out by Randi Hutter Epstein, I learned how the mid 1850’s-1900’s was a time... Continue Reading →

One step forward, & two back – Emma, Erica, Diana, Araceli
We have now began to start making our first prototype, with common materials such as a sock, glue, string, elastics, just to get a better idea on what our product will look like, and if what we designed will actually work. It has been an interesting couple of days in class, we have learned a lot... Continue Reading →
