Elisabeth Rosenthal talked about her New York Times series on the cost of childbirth in the United States. The series was based on Truven Health Analytics study that showed the U.S. as the nation with the highest childbirth costs in the world.

Ms. Rosenthal also responded to telephone calls and electronic communications.
