I wanted to pass along the brand new trailer for More Business of Being Born from Executive Producer Ricki Lake and Filmmaker Abby Epstein. This release follows their landmark documentary, The Business of Being Born, with a four part DVD series that continues their provocative and entertaining exploration of the modern maternity care system. More Business of Being Born, available November 8th, offers a practical look at birthing options as well as poignant celebrity birth stories from stars including Alanis Morissette, Gisele Bundchen, Christy Turlington-Burns, Cindy Crawford, Molly Ringwald, Laila Ali, Kimberly Williams-Paisley and Melissa Joan Hart. Part 4: The VBAC Dilemma is currently available for rental on demand. You can watch a trailer here.
As part of the cast of the first film, I was excited to go to its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival, unexpectedly pregnant. The film confirmed my decision -- and my husband's decision -- to have a home birth. Here's what I wrote about some of the reviews of the original film.
