Hello ladies (and gents?)

Just wanted to let you know about a charity screening of this fantastic Ricki Lake film to be shown in Edinburgh on Monday 13th October at 6pm.

In association with the NCT, the Save Independent Midwifery campaign of the Independent Midwives Association and the Edinburgh Choices for Childbirth support group a screening of this fantastic film will be held in Edinburgh on Monday 13th October, 6.00-8.00pm at The Dominion Cinema, Newbattle Terrace, Edinburgh.

All proceeds from the ticket sales will go to the above charities.

"Birth is a miracle, a rite of passage, a natural part of life. But birth is also big business. Compelled to explore the subject after the delivery of her first child, actress Ricki Lake recruits filmmaker Abby Epstein to question the way American women have babies. The film interlaces intimate birth stories with surprising historical, political and scientific insights and shocking statistics about the current maternity care system. When director Epstein discovers she is pregnant during the making of the film, the journey becomes even more personal. Should most births be viewed as a natural life process, or should every delivery be treated as a potentially catastrophic medical emergency?

More information and a trailer for the film is available here:
For Further information and tickets, please contact:

Carrie McIntosh or call 07890 842514

Tickets are £10 each or £10.50 by paypal.

This is a MUST see film for anyone thinking about having children, pregnant or who are already parents.
