“The Business of Being Born” is a documentary film that explores the contemporary experience of childbirth in the modern world. Should most births be viewed as a natural life process or should every delivery be treated as a potential emergency? The film offers a probing look at modern childbirth, explores the history of obstetrics, the history and function of midwives and how many common medical practices may be doing new mothers more harm than good. While the movie is focused on the U.S. it is relevant in the Indian context including Bangalore where we see abnormally high c-section rates for non-medically indicated reasons.

The film was followed by an interactive panel discussion featuring prominent Bangalore-based birth professionals. The panel discussion explored various strategies parents can use to empower themselves and achieve the birth they want.
