The Business of Being Born

January 1, 2008

Director Abby Epstein's controversial documentary takes a hard look at America's maternity care system, juxtaposing hospital deliveries against the growing popularity of at-home, natural childbirths that some expectant parents are opting for. Former talk show host Ricki Lake was inspired to produce this compelling exposé after a dissatisfying birthing experience with her first child left her with many unanswered questions.

Russian Spiritual Midwife, Tatyana Sargunas and her filmmaker husband Alexei, recorded five totally natural, incredible waterbirths. This video takes you on a breathtaking expedition to witness families birthing in the Black Sea, and into their home to see the birth of their own babies in a handmade clear birthing pool.
