5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful February 7, 2012
By vma0208
Rickey and Abby did it again. This was wonderful and less home birth heavy. Loved the famous women telling about there birth experiences. Lots of very good info including VBAC, doulas, and c-sections. Must see for all women who plan to give birth for the first time or the 11th time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great video on birth today March 12, 2012
Verified Purchase
I loved this video. Even better than the first one which I also really enjoyed. So many great minds and also celebrities makes it informative and entertaining. It is about time we had an honest discussion about the problems in our culture related to birthing choices for women and their families. A great testament to the power of grassroots activism!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Documentary March 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
every woman needs to watch both the Business of Being Born & More Business of Being Born these documentaries are mind expanding for all and packed with information. I highly recommend them especially to anyone having or planning to have a baby wether its you first or your next child. Also great for Doulas and or Midwives to have as part of their video library.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome August 8, 2012

Just finished watching. Such a great follow up to the first The Business of Being Born. A must see for anyone having a baby because it truly gives you information for an informed decision on your birth and the choices out there. For me it just solidified my thoughts and feelings about having a VBAC, switching from a traditional practice to a Midwife, and hiring a Doula for my second birth (first was a nightmarish C-section for a breech that was missed by 4 doctors!). My husband enjoyed getting the information too, and amazingly it sparked a conversation about our plans, and makes him feel empowered as well. I have three friends in line to borrow DVDs already.

Its funny how your feel so connected to the celebs in their video because they are women too just trying to make the best decisions for themselves and baby! Really cool spin. VBAC video was personally my favorite because even after all my research, I still learned a few new things.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the Original - But Adored the Follow-Up! January 22, 2013
I loved the "Business of Being Born", but "More Business of Being Born" was even better. I stumbled upon these films during the perfect time in my personal history for them to have the most relevance--right before falling pregnant. The controversial content piqued my interest and lead me to write a research paper for my Research & Methodologies class about the pitfalls of elective cesarean delivery. I have read an extensive number of research studies and analyzed many scientific findings to come to the conclusion that the film is not propagandist hokum. I felt compelled to seek out secondary sources because the many and varied accusations were quite strong. But between malpractice insurance, insurance companies, the alarming rate of new doctors our society produces, and the constant improvement of surgery techniques--women craving a natural birth are often seeking it in the wrong environment. I called several hospitals and purported birthing centers when making my own pregnancy decisions, and was startled by the lack of support my "natural birth" pregnancy plan received. There are even several doctors/nurses that do not allow water birth. Nor do they allow chair birthing, stool birthing, or anything other than lying on your back with your feet uncomfortably wedged into stirrups. I finally found a midwife who could accommodate me and I'm glad that I did. But this series of films was a real eye-opener.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy I bought it. October 28, 2012
Verified Purchase
The 4 Cds that make up this movie are phenomenal. Everything is broken down and explained in a neutral manner. They are not anti-hospital or anti-medical establishment, but they clearly show us that there are many different birthing options out there and women need to be more informed. I didn't see this until I was preganant with my third. I wish someone had given it to me when I was preganant with my first.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed :( August 23, 2012
By Kelly
I LOVE LOVE LOVE "The Business of Being Born"!! I had high hopes for "More Business of Being Born" and was hoping that it would contain more indepth information and interviews than it's predecessor. Unfortunately, I found it to be lacking in content and honestly, quite boring. I was really disappointed and would not recommend. I do however give "The Business of Being Born" 5 stars!!
