Ricki Lake's New Movie, 'The Business of Being Born' Promoted by Local 'Mom-Roots' Campaign

"The point here," observed Dr. Marsden Wagner, former Director of Women's and Children's Health, World Health Organization, "is there's not a good history in obstetric practice of careful study of the long term effects of all these interventions. This is why; if you really want a humanized birth, the best th
