His wife pregnant, first-time filmmaker Steve Buonaugurio set out to create a film that will expose the underside of the U.S. childbirth industry and help end its neglectful exploitation of pregnancy and birth with help from producers Betsy Chasse and Straw Weisman.
PREGNANT IN AMERICA examines the betrayal of humanity's greatest gift birth by the greed of U.S. corporations. Hospitals, insurance companies and other members of the healthcare industry have all pushed aside the best care of our infants and mothers to play the power game of raking in huge profits.
PREGNANT IN AMERICA is the controversial story of life's greatest miracle in the hands of a nation's most powerful interests.
