Why Not Home?
The Surprising Birth Choices of Doctors and Nurses
Friday, September 23, 2016

**Screening proceeds will benefit Hope's Door, a shelter for women**

Dr. Michelle Minikel thought home birth was crazy--until she got pregnant. Turns out she’s not alone. Why Not Home? exposes a secret from within the medical community. A small but growing number of doctors, midwives, and nurses who attend birth in the hospital are choosing to have their own children at home.

Through the compelling stories of women who choose to go outside the hospitals where they practice to give birth, viewers experience the beauty and challenges facing families both at home and in the hospital in a way that hasn’t been seen before.
