Director Abby Epstein's controversial documentary takes a hard look at America's maternity care system, juxtaposing hospital deliveries against the growing popularity of at-home, natural childbirths that some expectant parents are opting for. Former talk show host Ricki Lake was inspired to produce this compelling exposé after a dissatisfying birthing experience with her first child left her with many unanswered questions.
Executive Producer Ricki Lake and Filmmaker Abby Epstein follow their landmark documentary,'The Business of Being Born', with an all-new, four part DVD series that continues their provocative and entertaining exploration of the modern maternity care system.
Birth In Action chronicles the experience of one family's journey through a natural childbirth. This documentary takes an in-depth look at the natural birthing process, as well as the various stages of labor and birth from the moment the mother's water breaks to the glorious birth of the couple's son.
