Today, we explore a common occurrence of the human existence - childbirth. PRI's The World is exploring pregnancy and childbirth in a series called the Ninth Month and we'll take up the topic with an expert in our region. Dr. Anne Lyerly has conducted extensive research on pregnancy, the lack of understanding of treatments and medicines used for pregnant women and the rise of childbirth outside a hospital setting.
