Past Due did not disappoint. The writing was first-rate, although the subject matter could be - and often was - absolutely heartrending. Finger's pipe dream of natural childbirth at home with a midwife attending went up in scary smoke, ending in a complicated and emergency hospital Caesarian delivery. Anne Finger has much to say in this slight volume, and not just about the difficulties of a disabled woman giving birth, but about our society's attitudes toward the disabled, the helpless and the disenfranchised.

Her choice for a home birth was disastrous and I was surprised she doesn't hold anything against the people who took care of he. .Jan 01, 2013 Danielle rated it really liked it.
