Los Angeles, June 25, 2009–Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein, the documentarians behind the critically-acclaimed film The Business of Being Born and authors of Your Best Birth, will exclusively preview clips of their new film on MyBestBirth.com as a webisode series. Beginning on July 6th, 2009, the series will feature never-before-seen interviews from Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington Melissa Joan Hart, Alyson Hannigan, Laili Ali, Kellie Martin, Sarah Wayne Callies, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Joely Fisher and others, discussing their personal birth experiences. Crawford’s birth story will begin the series, airing over four weeks and culminating with an online chat with Crawford on MyBestBirth.com. The other celebrity stories will immediately follow.
The new film, titled My Best Birth and scheduled for release this fall, is a new educational video that will further explore the American maternity care system, while providing women with more in-depth information about their childbirth options; information not covered in Lake and Epstein’s previous projects.
“After releasing The Business of Being Born and Your Best Birth, Abby and I started receiving numerous requests from parents and parents-to-be yearning for additional information, which lead to the launch of our social networking site, MyBestBirth.com, last month” said Lake. “Since launching the site, we’ve seen how powerful and healing the sharing of birth stories can be for many parents. This demand spearheaded the new film and gave us the idea to ask celebrities to share their very personal birth stories.”
