About This Show

Based on over 100 interviews of birthing experiences, Birth explores the joy, pain, dismay and disillusionment of a woman’s most sacred and personal experience. This West Coast Premiere poignantly relates the stories of how seven middle-class, educated women give birth in America…showing the good, the bad and the ugly.

Birth, by Karen Brody, is co-produced by City Lights Theater Company’s Spotlight Series and Bay Area Birth Information (BABI), a South Bay nonprofit pregnancy, birth and family resource center. Through compassionate, accessible, and non-judgmental education and resources, BABI promotes greater awareness of evidenced-based care and the broad range of choices available to birthing women as well as birth professionals. Ross Nelson directs.
