Kathryn also interviews Harvard trained OB-GYN Amy Tuteur MD, author of “Push Back: Guilt in the Age of Natural Parenting”. Dr. Tuteur shows that most of the scientific claims of natural childbirth, breastfeeding and attachment parenting gurus are at best overstated and have all become big business, with a multitude of products and service providers who stand to profit from the false claims. Dr. Tuteur is featured in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and on NPR.
