i can't even begin to tell you how excited i am about this film! i think this topic (hospital care and expenses) is long overdue and it's time that people know what's really going on.

the most important thing is that women learn about their bodies and how capable they are. pregnancy is not a disease and does not require a team of medical staff in gowns (obviously there are those outstanding cases). it should not cost tens of thousands of dollars to bring a child into this world. it should not involve insurance and loads of medication.

i can't wait to hear the discussion on this and am so thankful that the film will be shown in PDX!

on the off chance that anyone's looking for a birth story to read, mine is posted here:

we had an all natural, homebirth and it was amazing. i'd do it all over again in a heartbeat.


oh yeah... in all of the excitement, i completely forgot to RSVP. i'll come to the jan. show.

Actually make that two for the January 26th showing


I too am so excited to see this film! I had an amazing homebirth with my first and am 5 months along with my second and planning another homebirth. It is about time a film was made that exposed the birthing industry and put the power back where it should be - with the mamas!

I would like to attend the January showing.


I'd love to come to the February showing. Count me in.


Another reservation for 1/26

This looks like a film I've been dreaming to make... count me and one friend in... I'm really looking forward to it! January showing (for 2). For anyone interested in learning more, check out this month's edition of Mothering magazine.

I'll be there Jan. 26! Wahoo! I've heard so much about this film...I can hardly wait! Thanks!!


Thanks to Mama G for pointing out that the Jan/Feb issue of Mothering Mag has Ricki Lake herself right on the cover! And while you can't read full articles on their web site, you can read the Editor's Note on the film: How cool that this mag offers digital subscriptions! Or is that totally normal these days and I am just that far behind the times? Don't answer, please!


Oops, I got the wrong link. Here's the right one direct to the current Mothering issue:

Tony at Milagros


If you would like to show it at a space in NE Portland we have a projector set-up in the Family Room at Milagros.

Let me know if your are interested, we would be happy to donate the space as part of a fundraiser or to just offer a free screening.

All the best,

Lisa, the Baby Expo held at the Rose Garden in September. It was a professional event for doulas and midwives but had a fantastic public vendor section and classes, too. Ricki Lake was there one night to introduce the movie!
