Rent the movies that started a movement! The Motherlode Movie Bundle is a collection that includes Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein's groundbreaking 2008 documentary, "The Business of Being Born," plus their four-part follow-up series "More Business of Being Born," AND "Breastmilk" and "The Mama Sherpas", two eye-opening documentaries produced by Ricki and Abby. 

Birth: it's a miracle. A rite of passage. A natural part of life. But more than anything, birth is a business. Compelled to find answers after a disappointing birth experience with her first child, actress Ricki Lake recruits filmmaker Abby Epstein to explore the maternity care system in America.
