Pregnant in America DVD

Written and directed by Steve Buonaugurio

   This is a well-balanced view of the health system surrounding being pregnant in America. It asks questions such as: “Why is it that the cesarean rate is 30 percent in the United States while the rest of the world considers 7 percent too high? Why are we charged so much more for fewer services in our hospitals than in other countries? Why do we give a drug to induce labor when it clearly states on the label: “Do not give to pregnant women”? Why do most childbirths happen Monday through Friday in our hospitals? Why are we discouraged and even penalized for not wanting a cesarean birth or wanting homebirth? If you’re looking for answers, you’re not alone—order this DVD.
