Contraception Museum opens (via boingboing).

In Ohio, of all places.

They’ve also got a flash presentation of “Obstetric Literature and the Changing Character of Childbirth.” If the coils don’t make you cringe…

And I snickered when I read the intro to their collection: “Birthing is a normal, yet extraordinary event that has been with us from time immemorial.”

I love that they felt they needed to remind readers that birth is “normal” and that women have been doing said birthing “from time immemorial.”

We’ve overmedicalized birth so much that I think people forget this.
