"Birth in Pieces" Film Premiere

  • Alamo Drafthouse Cinema El Paso 250 E Montecillo Blvd El Paso, TX 79912 United States (map)
What's wrong with birth in the USA? It's time to ask mothers.

El Jardín Birth and Family Resource Center and MindWarp Films present Birth in Pieces, a locally filmed and produced documentary that focuses on women’s birth experiences in the current context of a high national and state maternal mortality rate. What’s wrong with birth in the USA? Birth in Pieces explores mothers’ individual birth stories within a larger framework of a fragmented maternal healthcare system that doesn’t always place value on a mother’s autonomy or well being. In order to fix these systematic problems, we have to start by listening to women: it is possible to have an empowering birth and healthy start to motherhood, and all mothers and babies deserve that opportunity.
