I watched The Business of Being Born, a documentary produced by Ricki Lake about childbirth in America. While some of it simply doesn’t apply in Canada, and specifically BC where midwifery care is covered by our medical plan, some of the statistics about the sheer number of cesarean births in this decade and the medicalization of maternity care really hit home with me. If you haven’t seen this movie, I really do recommend it.
Have any of you seen it? What did you think?
