I just love Ricki Lake! Before I was even pregnant, I watched The Business of Being Born and was a changed woman. It really opened my eyes to the idea of choices in birth and feeling empowered. Due with number two in a few weeks, I anticipate meeting my child on our terms!
Ricki’s newest film is called Breast Milk: The Movie. A documentary that “is an intimate exploration of the constructs that can make breastfeeding daunting for so many women”. It follows a diverse group of families from pregnancy through their child’s first year. As you can see from the clip of the film below, we still have a lot of work to do to normalize breastfeeding. The more we see women breastfeeding the more normal it will be!
I can’t wait to check out the film!
