Judith Walzer Leavitt discusses her latest book Make Room for Daddy: The Journey from the Waiting Room to Birthing Room.

About the book: A fascinating look at an important but long-neglected aspect of childbirth in America--the changing role of the expectant father. Professor Leavitt uses fathers' first-hand accounts from letters, journals, and personal interviews along with hospital records and medical literature to offer a new perspective on the changing role of expectant fathers from the 1940s to the 1980s.
