Birth is a play based on over one hundred interviews Karen Brody conducted with mothers across America who gave birth between 2000-2004. It tells the true stories of 8 women painting a portrait of how low-risk, educated women are giving birth in America today.

In the play we meet Jillian, a stay-at-home mother of four children, who always sees the humor in life, especially in her mixed-bag of birth experiences; and Beth, a 35-year-old successful, high-powered computer systems manager from New Jersey who confidently planned a cesarean.

We are introduced to Vanessa, a buyer for a major department store who never had a doubt that she wanted an epidural. We hear from Janet, a lesbian in her 40s, who despite her feminist background wanted a medicalized birth, fearing the safety of herself and the baby; and Lisa, an African-American who felt intimidated and used by her midwives and the medical system after her birth.

We get to know Sandy, who thought birth was “just one day,” but found out that having an emergency c-section on that day changed her world. We hear Natalie's intimate story of physical betrayl; and Amanda, an athletic, confident stay-at-home mother who believed her birthing mantra--”My Body Rocks”--gave her the attitude she needed to give birth naturally in the hospital.

Moving between first-person monologues, some dialogue, and the voices these women heard on the day they gave birth, Birth confronts, what City Lights Theater Company has called, "The naked truth about childbirth in America."

Autographed copies of Birth are available at Alaska Family Health and Birth Center for $15.



Building Our Community- Fundraising Dinner February 23, 2010

Alaska Family Health and Birth Center's annual fundraising banquet was a great success thanks to the support of our wonderful community. 

Last spring, Martha Hanlon (Martha Hanlon Architects, Inc.), Daniel Holmgren( ThotPro Structural Engineering), Helena Rueter (Rueter Engineering),Evan Roberts (Roberts-Kaneko Electrical Consultants, Inc.), and Gary Jenkins, Civil Engineer were hired to design the building.  While Grady Brown continued dirt work during the summer, our design team worked to finalize the blue prints of the building.   Grady was able put in the driveway and part of the main parking area, thanks to a generous donation of gravel from Mick Killion (Killion Land Co).   

This winter, we are in the process of pulling permits to to be able to jump into building the foundation and framing the building this spring!

We are continuing to gather resources for our building project.
