I have the privilege of helping bring a screening of Ricki Lake’s amazing new movie about birth in America to Las Vegas – The Business of Being Born. There will be two shows, at 5 and 7:30 on Saturday, January 19. You can find more information and purchase tickets for the 7:30 show at BoBBSneakPeek.com (the 5:00 show is already sold out).
I am on the Board of Directors for a new organization in town, Well Rounded Momma. Well Rounded Momma’s mission is to provide our community with resources to encourage positive pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum experiences through education, empowerment and advocacy. All proceeds from the event will benefit Sisters Mothers Friends, an organization dedicated to bringing childbirth education and breastfeeding support to at-risk communities.
We have put together an amazing panel who have agreed to stay after the 5:00 show and answer questions raised by the movie. This panel includes medical doctors, midwives, Le Leche League leaders, and parents. In addition, birth professionals from across the Valley will be at tables in the lobby throughout the evening, educating the public on topics related to the birth year.
This has turned into an amazing event for the Las Vegas area, and is not to be missed. Get tickets in advance, as seating is extremely limited. Come early for the 7:30 show and visit with professionals who are there to answer your questions. Then enjoy a screening of a truly landmark documentary on the current state of birth in our country.
