"Wolf's many bold demands... give us pause and present challenges: society should restructure itself to accommodate babies" (Guardian)

"Wolf's polemic is as clear and sure as ever" (Observer)

"Misconceptions reminds us that pregnancy and birth are still swaddled in layers of illusion, that our society remains criminally hypocritical toward mothers... Naomi Wolf goes much deeper here than she ever has before. She strips bare the mind of the pregnant woman and new mother with dazzling courage" (Erica Jong)

"Fiercely confident and uncompromising" (Publishers Weekly)


The bestselling author of The Beauty Myth uses the personal to explore the 'birth myth', the culture and practices of pregnancy and childbirth, with ferocity and passion.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not the most positive spin... 18. Juni 2004
Von Megami - Veröffentlicht auf
I read this book when about five months pregnant. Admittedly, with Naomi Wolf you know that you are not going to get the most positive spin on the situation at hand, but I found this to be a really odd book. What I was looking forward to was a well written account of both the positives and negatives of the motherhood experience. What I got was a very negative take on a situation familiar to many women. It is almost that Wolf went looking for every negative aspect of pregnancy and found it. Admittedly, having nine months of morning sickness is not great. But I feel that she over exaggerates in so many areas.
For example, she goes on about how pregnancy and birth is always presented as a positive experience, with no warning of the not-so-great bits. I am not sure what she has been reading or who she has been speaking to - there is a lot of information out there about the not-so-great things that happen to your body, and your mental state. She acts as though she is a passive, put upon participant in her pregnancy, which just doesn't ring true - as a highly educated woman who has spent her professional life as an advocate, why can't she take control of her situation like so many other women seem to manage?
The final loss of credibility is the complaining about her impersonal obstetrics experiences, compared to the more `natural' way of doing things. Two points - she is wealthy enough to have made a choice here, why didn't she? And secondly, it is the modern, impersonal medical care which potentially saved her and her baby's life.
Being a mother can be hard. But we all have choices. Admittedly, I am not going through the American system, so perhaps things are a little different. But I did not find this book helpful at all - it seemed the author had already made her mind up what the results would be and skewed everything to fit a certain viewpoint that I could not relate to. Of interest to women's studies scholars perhaps, but for the expectant mother, this book doesn't really have much to add.

5.0 von 5 Sternen OPEN YOUR EYES 19. September 2007
Von JB_1969 - Veröffentlicht auf
If you're pregnant and don't care if your ob/gyn pumps you full of meds and performs an episiotomy on you and/or a c-section in order to better fit your baby's birth into his busy schedule, then don't read this book. My wife is probably as far from being a rabid feminist as a person can be. But she does happen to have this wacky idea that giving birth ought to be something a woman can do without a whole lot of unnecessary medical interventions, if she wants to. My wife has given birth naturally to all 3 of our kids -- no problems whatsoever for either mom or babies. And every time she's had to fight off the ob/gyn's suggested interventions. Interventions she might not have been able to argue against had she not read Naomi's book and other resources and educated herself about the American medical establishment's typical ob/gyn practices. To blow off this book as a lot of feminist hooey is akin to plugging your ears, covering your eyes and ranting NA-NA-NA-NA-NA-NA...I CAN'T HEAR YOU! Read this book, get informed and then make up your own mind as to how you want to approach your own berthing experience.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Good book! 28. März 2013

I enjoyed this book. As always, Naomi is engaging and makes some very powerful arguments.
Personally, I completely disagreed with the section of her book relating to birth, however found her examination of the changes in a couple's relationship dynamic and women's role in society post birth to be very interesting and very much reflecting the experience of me and my circle of friends.
For me, the greatest value of the book was in Naomi's examination of the changes in her own perceptions and attitudes when she got pregnant-very honest account of her experience.
