Event Description

Down on The Farm: Conversations with Legendary Midwife Ina May Gaskin

Follow Executive Producer Ricki Lake and Director Abby Epstein to The Farm Community in Summertown, Tennessee, where pioneer midwife Ina May Gaskin talks candidly about the latest birth trends. Gaskin, who was featured in the original The Business of Being Born, sparked Lake’s initial interest in home birth and has continued to inspire the filmmaking duo’s advocacy efforts. Also on the journey is pregnant actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley, who joins them in getting to know The Farm's famous midwives and touring the picturesque birth cabins situated in the woods. Bonus features on the DVD include additional interviews with Gaskin, Williams-Paisley's emotional birth stories and a conversation with Christy Turlington-Burns about her shared passion for improving maternal mortality.


Special Deliveries: Celebrity Mothers Talk Straight on Birth

Featuring celebrity moms Laila Ali, Michelle Alves, Gisele Bundchen, Sarah Wayne Callies, Cindy Crawford, Alyson Hannigan, Melissa Joan Hart, Kellie Martin, Alanis Morissette, Molly Ringwald, Christy Turlington-Burns and Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Special Deliveries provides collected stories from a group fearless mothers. Their riveting testimonies speak to the power of the birth experience, whether they worked with midwives and/or obstetricians. They trusted their bodies and intuitions, taking control and trusting themselves instead of following “the experts” blindly. None of these courageous women has ever spoken on the record in such compelling detail, and, on this DVD, the filmmakers weave together these passionate narratives as a celebration of the journey to motherhood that will leave viewers with a renewed sense of amazement about the power of women.
