This month's movie is Born in the U.S.A.

BORN IN THE U.S.A. is the first public television documentary to provide an in-depth look at childbirth in America.

"Through the eyes of an obstetrician, a licensed midwife attending homebirths, and a nurse-midwife at an urban birth center, BORN IN THE U.S.A. explores the landscape of American maternity care. How do different caregivers answer these fundamental questions: What is "normal" birth? How much technology does safety require? What choices do women have? How do we decide what's best?"

The state of birthing in the U.S. is complex and controversial. While we now routinely use technology that saves countless lives that might have been lost just ten years ago, this technology has also led to one of the highest cesarean section rates in the world - one in five - and more than half of all births involve some type of surgical or operative procedure.
