<![CDATA[Birth-A play to benefit the Vermont Midwives Association]]>Sat, 09 Nov 2013 15:16:51 GMThttp://www.vermontmidwivesassociation.org/news--events/birth-a-play-to-benefit-the-vermont-midwives-associationBirth 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.

Performances held at the Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center
60 Lake Street, Burlington, Vermont 05401

November 8th at 7 pm
November 9th at 3 pm and 7 pm

Each show followed by a panel discussion

Admission includes one raffle ticket.
