That's what I liked and disliked about it. There was a lot of good information, but also a lot of conjecture.

Ricki Lake isn't a doctor, but I don't think you need to be a doctor to be passionate about birth. There were a lot of medical professionals in the documentary as well, including OBs and CNMs. Personally, I'd take Ina May Gaskin's professional advice over an OB's under most circumstances.

We need to put more faith back in the birthing process and take the fear out. So many first time moms are terrified to give birth because it's been made into a huge medical ordeal. It's just gotten ridiculous.
