Pregnant in America examines the betrayal of humanity's greatest gift--birth--by the greed of U.S. corporations. Hospitals, insurance companies and other members of the healthcare industry have all pushed aside the best care of our infants and mothers to play the power game of raking in huge profits.

His wife pregnant, first-time filmmaker Steve Buonaugurio sets out to create a film that will expose the underside of the U.S. childbirth industry and help end its neglectful exploitation of pregnancy and birth.

Pregnant in America is the controversial story of life's greatest miracle in the hands of a nation's most powerful interests.

I recently watched "Pregnant in America" and was deeply moved. So I'm going round signing my name to all that I can, to show MY support. I will tell others too, where I can, as people have their own issues, but I will mention it where possible. Zik Ukaeje BODacious Inc. Hollywood.
I love the people of the US, speaking out against their government with countless documentaries being view around the world. Hope yall get through this!
Doctors make more money performing C-Section rather than normal birth. Crooks.

when will you give up the ego and live?... Now science is talking about how you can cure everything with just the food you eat, free energy is easily possible, humans and everything is connected energetically through a field that is conscious (quantum physics), and that there is BILLIONS of planets with HuMaN life in OUR galaxy because we and life are a natural creation of this energetic field.. dont take my word(a hippie) take the science communities word... atleast the ones not paid by gov.

after all dont we find truth from all of humanity, all people, not just government? You know just trusting them and not doing your own research takes power of knowledge from the daily people and gives that power to an external source.. maybe dont trust a doctor and decide for yourself? I think we each need to be our own person and do our own research by connecting with all people around the world and only taking the word of the people.
A friend of mine gave birth to her three sons at home, and she said it was the most beautiful experience of her life, without all the cables, med bags hanging above her, maschines, dozens of people around, going in and out of the room, monitors, cold bright light and the typicall hospital smell.
Damn I'm just going to birth my damn self at this point. If a fuckin' Donkey can do it, so can I!
Jeee's I'm glad I'm a man , would'nt like to go through all that ! Wow! what did my Misus go through 3 times ? Think I'll give her a hug and say nothing .
I had both of my babies at home. The first time it took 30 hours and had to have a bit of morphine. The second birth took only 5 hours and I had acupuncture, which helped quite a bit. Both babies were very healthy. I breastfed them and did not vaccinate them. They are both all grown up now, successful, healthy and attractive. Although I had health insurance, which would have paid for it, I chose to pay for the birth with my savings. It was well worth it. 
What kind of error? And what happened to your daughter?
