Born in the U.S.A. Cover Image DVD DVD

Born in the U.S.A.

Summary: This program explores the landscape of maternity care through the eyes of three caregivers: a progressive obstetrician working at a teaching hospital, a skillful articulate licensed midwife who attends home births, and a compassionate certified nurse-midwife who bridges both worlds in an urban, free-standing birth center. Examines childbirth practices in this country, and raises important questions about technology, about social and other factors that impact our experiences of child birth, and about what constitutes best care.
