Charlotte and I just finished watching The Business of Being Born on Netflix. I would highly recommend it to anyone having a baby in this country. The high rate of cesarean sections in the US compared to the rest of the western world (despite the dangers), the sharp decline of midwifery (and the reasons behind it), the mortality rate statistics... it's an eye-opener.
