Birth is a play based on over one hundred interviews Karen Brody conducted with mothers across America who gave birth between 2000-2004. It tells the true stories of 8 women painting a portrait of how low-risk, educated women are giving birth in America today.
Moving between first-person monologues, some dialogue, and the voices these women heard on the day they gave birth, Birth confronts, what City Lights Theater Company has called, “The naked truth about childbirth in America.”
After the play, there will be a panel discussion with health care professionals, advocates, and community members to discuss and answer questions about birth as it is today in New York.
Take this opportunity to be part of something extraordinary and to support women’s health care through the organization American College of Nurse Midwives, New York City Chapter.
