I wanted to let you know about a new documentary Pregnant in America which examines the betrayal of humanity's greatest gift--birth--by the greed of U.S. corporations. Hospitals, insurance companies and other members of the healthcare industry have all pushed aside the best care of our infants and mothers to play the power game of raking in huge profits. You can watch the trailer here also, on youtube.

His wife pregnant, first-time filmmaker Steve Buonaugurio sets out to create a film that will expose the underside of the U.S. childbirth industry and help end its neglectful exploitation of pregnancy and birth.

Pregnant in America is the controversial story of life's greatest miracle in the hands of a nation's most powerful interests.

I saw it and thought it was a great follow on to the BOBB, it added a different point of view to it coming from an expectant father. The end was really interesting too - I won't give it away, but made me wait in suspense!
I would really like to see it, Ive only seen previews although it was being shown down in Eugene!
My husband bought me the BOBB already and Ive watched it a ton... Im actually considering the homebirth instead of waterbirth at the hospital now...
