English Summary/英文概要: From a detailed look at what happens in the intense moments immediately preceding and following birth, to an eye-popping history of painkillers, birthing methods and infant resuscitation, Sloan shows how millions of years of human history are encapsulated in one day - in the universal experience of childbirth and the first day of life. Part memoir, part narrative, part science and history, this audio focuses on both the biology and wonder of human birth. This title combines history, biology, and culture with humor, compassion, and real-life anecdotes and gives equal emphasis to the clinical and emotional aspects of this timeless experience.


Chinese Summary/中文概要: “没人比Dr. Mark Sloan将婴儿从母亲体内到呱呱坠地靠自己呼吸,这段惊奇又复杂的历程描写的更完美、更清楚了。
Sloan致力于对婴儿出生的研究,操作过数千次分娩手术,能够熟练面对分娩过程中必定出现和可能出错的各类状况。他想出了许多处理分娩时阵痛的办法,事实证明这些方法对母亲和孩子都起到一定的良好效果,支持在有限的替代品中加入氧化亚氮,此举已被包括美国在内的许多国家使用,得到妇女们的支持和认可。”
——Judith P. Rooks, CNM, author of Midwifery& Childbirth in America
“我已生育过两次,直到本书的出现,我才领悟到母亲和孩子在分娩期间产生的那种真正的奇妙感。这是一部令人惊异、体贴人心又不乏乐趣的读物!”
——Adair Lara, author of Hold Me Close, Let me Go
“这是本伟大的著作,作者将历史、生物学、社会学以及分娩医学领域中的知识融入书中,谱写一段蕴涵趣味和教育性的篇章。
心怀期待的父母们会在本书中获得有用可靠的相关信息,对于内科医生也是如此。此外,作者还记叙了许多有关医学院、培训和实践的个人故事,勾起回忆,也博得众人的欢笑。
对于初为人母和业内人士都是必不可少的作品。”
——Donald Caton, M.D.Emeritus Professor of Anesthesia, University of Florida, and author of What a Blessing She Had Chloroform
“书中,作者巧妙地把个人逸事、自然科学和奇异的历史细节结合起来,阐述一段大家都经历过的从‘子宫来到世界’的旅程,内容丰富有趣。毫无疑问,本书让你体验娱乐的同时也受益非浅,并对自己的母亲致以深深的感激!”
——Katrina Firlik, MD, author of Another Day in the Frontal Lobe: A Brain Surgeon Exposes Life On the Inside

作者从突然而至临盆的紧张时刻和随即出现的分娩状况做出的详细观察,延续到记录着止痛药、分娩方法和婴儿复生的历史,无不令人惊讶感叹,从中指出人类上万年的成长史是如何缩影于新生命降临的那一天。本书由传记、叙述、科学理论和历史记载构成,围绕生物学和人类分娩的奇迹而作。把历史、生物学、文化与幽默、怜悯之心以及现实生活中的逸事相融合,并强调临床和情感方面的因素在分娩过程中是同等重要的。(ZY)


Awards/获奖情况: “Sloan covers a lot of ground, and it’s clear he’s read widely and done a lot of research in a variety of disciplines, from anthropology to world history… well-researched and funny… Birth Day is an excellent primer from an engaging author.”
—The San Francisco Chronicle

“Sloan, who practices in Northern California, is a graceful writer, and his narrative, like the works of Jerome Groopman, flows easily between memoir, anecdotal reporting and hard science… Anyone interested in the complex and, yes, miraculous way we all make it into this world will find lots to wonder over and ponder here.”
––The Washington Post

“California pediatrician Sloan has helped deliver more than 3,000 babies, and he marvelously captures the precarious nature of childbirth—both its joys and anxieties—while treating readers to an informal and captivating history of the medical practices surrounding birth in America.”
––Publishers’ Weekly (starred review)

“What boosts Sloan’s book above other pediatrician memoirs is his Captain Kangaroo-like humor and compassion… With its crisp and upbeat tone, Sloan’s book is good company for parents experienced and prospective alike.”
—Booklist

“No one has described the intricate timing and sequence of a baby’s miracle transition from inside its mother to breathing on its own more clearly or beautifully than Dr. Mark Sloan, who has focused on the baby during thousands of births and understands what needs to happen, and what can go wrong. Sloan covers the various approaches to pain-management during labor and their effects on both mother and child, and he supports adding nitrous oxide—safe and widely used for labor in so many other countries—to the very limited alternatives now available to women in America.”
––Judith P. Rooks, CNM, MPH, author of Midwifery & Childbirth in America

“I have given birth twice, but until this book never grasped the true wonder of what happens to mother and child during childbirth. An amazing, tender, funny book about our bigheaded species.”
––Adair Lara, author of Hold Me Close, Let me Go

“Birth Day is a wonderful book. Dr. Sloan has accomplished the impossible, combining the history, biology, sociology and medicine of childbirth into an informative, yet amusing, story. Expectant parents will find this book useful and reassuring. So will physicians. Personal stories of medical school, resident training and practice that Dr. Sloan incorporated into this narrative brought back memories and elicited many smiles. Birth Day is a ’must’ for new parents and for professionals.”
--Donald Caton, M.D.

California pediatrician Sloan has helped deliver more than 3,000 babies, and he marvelously captures the precarious nature of childbirth—both its joys and its anxieties—while treating readers to an informal and captivating history of the medical practices surrounding birth in America. Sloan shares his first bumbled attempts at delivering babies as an intern, which leads him into reflect on why doctors persist in having women lie down to give birth when standing or squatting are better physical postures for it. Sloan ranges surely and splendidly over epidurals, cesarean births, premature birth and neonatal nurseries, as well as the state of an infant’s five senses at birth. For example, he points out that the fetus not only smells the foods its mother eats, it remembers them after birth and tends to like what it remembers. Sloan counsels that women cannot prepare for labor, because events change rapidly during the process. He advises women to surround themselves with the people they love: “unlike other labor pain relievers she may choose, their benefits will last the rest of her life.”
--Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW.
