Did You Know?

Birth is a miracle, a natural part of life. But birth is also big business.

In this recent movie documentary, Executive Producer Ricki Lake and Director Abby Epstein question the way American women have babies, and explore this fundamental question:

Should most births be viewed as a natural life process, or should every delivery be treated as a potential medical emergency?

THE BUSINESS OF BEING BORN makes a compelling argument for more humanistic approaches to birth, challenging the ideals of our technocratic society which places absolute faith in machines and technology. It is a must-see for anyone thinking of having a baby.

THE BUSINESS OF BEING BORN is currently available to rent on Netflix at no charge for new members with a free trial.

Or, if you would like to own the movie, it may be purchased here.

Some physicians may support a families right to choose a midwife, but unlike other countries, here in the United States it is quite rare for medical doctors to inform their patients of the option of a midwife, even when they know it is available and appropriate for healthy women.
