At another board I frequent, someone posted this link<br><a href="http://www.pregnantinamerica.com" target="_blank">http://www.pregnantinamerica.com</a><br><br>
I tried to watch the trailer, but the video didn't show up, just the audio. It sounds incredibly intriguing, and something I'd really like to see. Here's the synopsis:<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">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.<br><br>
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.<br><br>
Pregnant in America is the controversial story of life's greatest miracle in the hands of a nation's most powerful interests.</td>

It's due out this year, but doesn't say when, and I can't find any more info on it... I really want to see it though, and hopefully it will be national and in regular theaters... might be an eye-opening experience for a lot of Americans

The trailer worked for me. This looks fantastic! I may even donate some money to help ensure that this gets marketed widely. This could explode the entire pregnancy and birth medicalization in America wide open.<br><br>
Ina May Gaskin; the founder of Hypobabies; homebirths in Holland .... America needs to see this.

I saw the trailer...I'm totally going to watch this one. Or buy it or rent it or whatever. That's going to be cool. I'm happy to see that the truth is coming out.

Looks great...I would love for something like this to go to the film festivals, get national attention, etc. I went to the movies tonight for the first time in years and the first thing I thought while watching the previews is that there should be a movie that dramatizes this topic...to really grab America's attention.

Wow, can't wait for its release. I hope it will be in theaters. Might be eye openning for some.

It's a good idea, but is there some way I can contact the filmmaker to advise him of the spelling mistake at the beginning of the trailer? I don't think starting a trailer with "indistrialized" is a good way to get accepted to festivals. Looks careless.

lolar2, I agree - that irritated the heck out of me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: I hope you can contact them about it.

Oh, yeah, you reminded me of that. It was very noticable, but then by the time I got to the end I forgot all about it.<br><br>
