This multi-disciplinary collection of essays from the Cambridge Socio-Legal Group is concerned with the varying circumstances, manner, timing and experiences of birth.

  • Who has power during the birthing process?
  • How has the experience of birth changed over time?
  • Should birth mark a significant change in the legal status of the foetus?
  • What is the proper role of birth registration?
  • What role, if any, do fathers have in the birthing process?
  • How should the law respond to still birth?
  • What legal rights should the woman have to refuse treatment during the birthing process?
  • What is the significance of changes of the age at which women give birth? This stimulating collection of papers provides new insights into one of life's most momentous moments.
