Why Not Home? Seattle Premiere
***April 20, 2016: This event has sold out. To be placed on our wait list, please email us at***

Join us for the premiere of "Why Not Home?", the documentary that tells the stories of doctors, nurses, and midwives who have attended hundreds of hospital births, yet chose to have their children at home. How did these women with inside knowledge of birth evaluate the evidence and make their decisions? Through the experiences of these women, both at home and in the hospital, we gain unique insights into risk, safety, and the experience of childbirth in America.

At one time, home birth was the norm, and hospital birth was the exception. Now, nearly 99% of births in America take place in hospitals. With the normalizing of hospital birth, the notion of home birth carries a certain stigma and evokes fear and judgment from many. How did we become so fearful of birth in America? Has birth changed in significant ways? Through a combination of personal stories and scientific data about safety and interventions, we explore these questions and more.

The film showing will be preceded by a wine & cheese reception (cost included in ticket price). After the screening, stick around for a Q&A with director Jessicca Moore and a panel of local health care practitioners.
