El Jardín Birth and Family Resource Center and MindWarp Films present Birth in Pieces, a locally filmed and produced documentary that focuses on women’s birth experiences in the current context of a high national and state maternal mortality rate. What’s wrong with birth in the USA? Birth in Pieces explores mothers’ individual birth stories within a larger framework of a fragmented maternal healthcare system that doesn’t always place value on a mother’s autonomy or wellbeing. In order to fix these systematic problems, the film contends that we must start by listening to women: it is possible to have an empowering birth and healthy start to motherhood, and all mothers and babies deserve that opportunity.
The El Paso community premiere of Birth in Pieces is sponsored by the El Paso Film Festival. El Jardín Birth and Family Resource Center is a local nonprofit under the fiscal sponsorship of the Paso del Norte Community Foundation.
