Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) September 17, 2009
Pregnancy.org, LLC, Internet publishing pioneer, creator and syndicator of online content ranging from getting pregnant to baby and beyond announces today that internationally acclaimed actor, former talk show host, independent filmmaker, family advocate and author Ricki Lake will join Mollee Bauer, host of the Pregnancy.org Live: Before, During & After radio program on VoiceAmerica (http://www.modavox.com/voiceamerica/vshow.aspx?sid=1573) Thursday, September 24, at 11 am Pacific / 2 p.m. Eastern. Lake will discuss her new book, movie and social networking website (http://www.MyBestBirth.com).
Although widely known as an actress and former talk show host, Lake is now emerging in the birthing community as an avid education advocate. Last year, Lake executive produced the critically acclaimed documentary THE BUSINESS OF BEING BORN. The film, which debuted at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival, examined natural childbirth in the U.S. and studied the high rate of medical interventions in low-risk pregnancies. Since the film's theatrical and DVD releases, the project has generated a grassroots movement, encouraging many parents-to-be to become informed about their birthing options including the midwifery model of care, natural births and home births.
In May 2009, Lake and the director of THE BUSINESS OF BEING BORN, Abby Epstein, released their first book, YOUR BEST BIRTH. The guide is an invaluable tool for expecting parents, designed to educate families about their birthing options and encourage parents-to-be to ask informed questions of their health care professionals. Lake is also presently on the Board of the New Space for Women's Health in New York City -- a non-profit organization that will build a natural, freestanding birthing center in Manhattan, where presently none exists.
