Summary
"From executive producers Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein, this topical new documentary by Brigid Maher examines a growing shift in the birthing industry: the rise of Caesarean sections. With C-section rates dangerously over 30% in America, are midwives the solution? In recent years, the idea of a 'collaborative care' practice where doctors and midwives manage women's care together has begun to gain traction. Research has demonstrated that collaborative care models produce better outcomes for mother and baby, including fewer C-sections. This moving and urgent film provides an intimate lens into how midwives across the country work within and better the hospital system, redefining how the US looks at the birthing process"--Package
