Making our new documentary series More Business of Being Born, director Abby Epstein and I interviewed a group of high-profile women about their birth experiences. The moms that we filmed included Alanis Morissette, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington Burns, Gisele Bündchen, Laila Ali, Alyson Hannigan, Melissa Joan Hart, Kimberly Williams Paisley and Kellie Martin. Our original plan was to sprinkle their appearances throughout the series, but we ended up with so many amazing birth stories that we decided to compile them into one sweet film called Special Deliveries: Celebrity Mothers Talk Straight on Birth. It's always tricky when you focus on "celebrity moms" because I think pregnant women often prefer to hear the stories of "real people." But the women we interviewed were so unexpectedly brave and honest in sharing their fears and triumphs that we felt their stories would be inspiring to all expectant mothers.
