Cindy Crawford and Ricky Lake on Home Birth in My Best Birth

Does Star Power Make You Want to Watch My Best Birth?

The Business of Being Born has brought more attention to the film's star and co-producer Ricki Lake than she may have ever imagined. The former talk-show host made it her mission to birth her second baby naturally and document the experience to release to the public. She and co-producer, Abby Epstein revealed facts about epidurals, C-sections, and inductions.

As an encore, the bubbly girl from New York is back with another documentary due out this Fall. Based on their book, the new movie is called My Best Birth. It focuses on the American maternity-care system and has famous moms like Laila Ali, Melissa Joan Hart, Kristy Turlington, and Kimberly Williams-Paisley giving snippets of their own experiences. Cindy Crawford kicks off the series of four webisodes tomorrow. The videos will air each week for the next month, detailing how the women chose their midwifes, did prenatal yoga, and the lessons they learned. Watch the trailer and tell us if you'll be tuning in.

"most women don't have access to the money to pay a midwife or doctor out of pocket to come to their homes" Everyone has the option of homebirth, whether by freebirthing (without a midwife, and its perfectly safe i have attended many) or with a midwife, if it is planned correctly and saved for.

Yeah, I think I'll tune in to watch more of this. I'm interested to see the pre-natal yoga stuff.

Anonymous, are you aware that the woman behind the camera for the Business of Being Born got pregnant during filming and became a subject of the film? Through the filming she and her partner decided to do a home birth. They selected the midwife and began the process. Things did not go like they planned and she had to go to the hospital for a c-section. She addresses her feelings about not being to have a home birth in the film. This includes her disappointment. I think part of the publicity about these births is that they are not easily available to most of us in the U. S. and the healthcare industry is trying to keep it that way.

anonymous, no one is self righteous in these movies and if you bothered to read the books ..its about your best birth, whether its natural or not, that you are informed of your choices and are empowered.
