The California Association of Midwives and Movies on a Big Screen Present:

The Business of Being Born - a fundraiser for The California Association of Midwives

Location: 600 4th St, West Sacramento. That's the corner of 4th & F in West Sacramento (just over the river from downtown near the Pyramid Building).

Birth: it’s a miracle. A rite of passage. A natural part of life. But more than anything, birth is a business.

Compelled to find answers after a disappointing birth experience with her first child, actress Ricki Lake recruits filmmaker Abby Epstein to examine and question the way American women have babies. The film interlaces intimate birth stories with surprising historical, political and scientific insights and shocking statistics about the current maternity care system. When director Epstein discovers she is pregnant during the making of the film, the journey becomes even more personal. Should most births be viewed as a natural life process, or should every delivery be treated as a potentially catastrophic medical emergency?

A panel discussion is scheduled to follow the screening.
