Ricki Lake has upped herself considerably in my estimation. She has helped to produce this amazing new DVD which gets to the point very quickly. It shows the insanity of the over-medicalisation of birth, to the point of creating risk to mum and baby. See the trailer by clicking here, and you’ll see what I mean. If the trailer has whetted your appetite and you want to watch all of it for a mere £5, the Independent Midwives Association are screening it in Nottingham on the 17th and 18th June and in Leicester on the 24th May.
