Event Details: Ricki Lake & Abby Epstein - Business of Being Born - Screening & Panel Discussion


The Business of Being Born (BOBB) documentary screening is back, this time with the Executive Producer and Director themselves leading the way. Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein will be joining us along with OB/GYNs and Midwives from the original production. This mini-reunion will cover the subject of birthing care in the United States and its impact on the health and mental health of women.

Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein have been at the forefront of bringing awareness of reproductive and maternal health issues to the mass public through the power of film. Since BOBB, they have also Executive Produced the documentary Breastmilk together, and are currently once more in production for the upcoming Sweetening the Pill (about contraception for women). Their follow-up More Business of Being Born was released in 2011 to discuss additional birthing options such as VBAC (Vaginal Birth After C-Section) and to open up with celebrities who share their own birth stories.
