Hi everyone,

Please plan to join us at our monthly public meeting on August 13th. We will be screening the movie "Laboring Under An Illusion: Mass Media Childbirth vs The Real Thing" with a group discussion afterwards.

Since we'll be watching a movie, please arrange for childcare if you can.

About the film:

"Anthropologist Vicki Elson explores media-generated myths about childbirth. As a childbirth educator for 25 years, she observes daily how our culture affects our birth experiences. In this film, she contrasts fiction with reality. The result is hilarious, engaging, and enlightening.

'To understand what it's really like to have a baby, we have to debunk the silly and scary images served up by the profit-driven media. In reality, birth is hard work, sometimes simple, sometimes complicated, but always miraculous and unforgettable.'"

Meeting Details:
Friday, August 13th
Organizational Meeting: 6:00 PM
Public Meeting: 7:00 PM
One Family Birth Center
1108 East Northern Lights Blvd
Anchorage, AK
