The Mama Sherpas intimately examines the current state of the American birthing industry, where a dangerously high growth in C-section rates has opened an opportunity for a more holistic model of care. Research has suggested that this collaborative care model, where midwives and doctors work in tandem for mother and baby, fosters a significantly more positive experience as well a marked decrease in unnecessary Cesarians. Executive produced by Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein, The Mama Sherpas is the necessary next evolution on the subject of maternal health since the pioneering documentary Business of Being Born. This film is highly recommended for Midwifery Organizations as well as College and University courses in Nursing, Public Policy, Women's Studies, and Infant Care.
