Birth is a life-changing event.  Every birth has a story.  We are ready to share what we've heard.

Birth in Pieces

What is it?


El Jardín began this project in 2015.  A labor of love, this project spanned multiple years and took various twists and turns as we interviewed more and more women. Patterns emerged.  We realized that these individual narratives, together, painted a picture of modern birth culture.  What's wrong with birth in the USA?  It's time to ask mothers.
