Podcast: Birth on TV and in the movies

We’re pleased to present an interview with Vicki Elson, creator of the film Laboring Under an Illusion, on birth in the media.

Vicki talked with Tanya Lieberman about common themes in birth on TV and in movies, the worst and best (and wierdest!) depictions of birth, and recent trends in reality TV and homemade birth videos on the web.  They discussed the depictions of partners in media births, and the influence that media births have on mothers’ perceptions and fears about childbirth.  You can see some of the clips we discussed in the trailer below.
