A LOUISIANA FILM SOCIETY SPECIAL PRESENTATION:

Giving Birth in America (46 minutes)

Wed, April 13th @ 7:30 PM in Cinemark 1

Maternal health non-profit Every Mother Counts presents a new three-part, short documentary series, “Giving Birth in America,” to examine some of the key reasons that the U.S. is falling so far behind in maternal healthcare.  Each short film follows pregnant women and their healthcare providers in Florida, Montana and New York in the days leading up to delivery. Together, they navigate challenges of race, poverty, chronic illness, overuse of medical interventions and other inequalities that impact maternal health outcomes in America.
