Birth is a documentary-style play based on over one hundred interviews Karen Brody conducted with pregnant mothers across America about their birth experiences. It tells the true stories of 8 women painting a portrait of how low-risk, educated women are giving birth in America today.
Although Brody interviewed only American women the themes in the play are universally found in most industrialized countries today: the surprisingly large number of pregnant women not knowing their birth options and the risks of medical interventions; coercion of pregnant women physically and verbally; the power and pleasure available to women who give birth; and that secret knowing inside all pregnant moms that their bodies rock.
