In December, we will screen More Business of Being Born - The VBAC Dilemma: What Your Options Really Are. The VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean) has become a hot-button issue in the modern maternity care system, as one in three new mothers will give birth via cesarean section. Are all of these mothers then forced to undergo a repeat cesarean the next time around? The makers of this film, Abby Epstein and Ricki Lake, posed that question to dozens of experts, determining the surprising truth about VBACs.
In January and February, we will show Explore Your Options: Doulas, Birth Centers and C-Sections. This film offers birth-planning guidance around key topics such as the role of doulas (labor support specialists), the advantages of birth centers and the alarming escalation of cesarean sections.
Each film is 51 minutes in running time and will be followed by discussion.
