Watch: The Business Of Being Born — A Must-See Documentary For Expectant Parents

If you are an expectant parent and want to familiarize yourself with the advantages of giving birth at home, I recommend that you view a documentary called The Business of Being Born (see player). While the makers of this documentary have a strong bias against hospital births, they ask viewers to consider questions that every expectant parent ought to seek answers to before making a decision on where to give birth; some examples of such questions are:

  • Why does the U.S. have the second-worst newborn death rate in the developed world?
  • Why are more than 40 percent of the deliveries done in some New York hospitals Caesarean sections?
  • Why, according to a study, are the peak hours for Caesarean procedures at 4 in the afternoon and 10 at night?
