Aliano focused her interview on the aspects of The Business of Being Born that directly relates to natural childbirth and the positive ways that Lake and Epstein's documentary depicts the practice. "The Business of Being Born is a must-see, inspiring and thought provoking documentary film produced by Ricki Lake and directed by Abby Epstein. Anyone who is considering starting a family, who is pregnant, or who works with pregnancy and childbirth and has not seen this film, I urge you to watch it and share it with others," said Aliano of the documentary.
Topics that were brought up in the interview ranged from activism seen since the movie's release, the publicity discussing the pro's of home birth, how Lake has been perceived by the media, successes since coming out with the film to tip's on how practitioners can help to change birth in this country."We have to respect women and their bodies, and acknowledge what we are capable of doing, most times, by ourselves, without the saving of any doctor or hospital. Our bodies are miraculous, and we can withstand a lot of pain. I think we've lost sight of how normal 'normal' birth really is. I think that once we have reverence for that, we can do a lot of good," said Ricki Lake of the power that women have and the fact that natural birth is "normal."
