Abby Epstein, Producer of Business of Being Born

Abby Epstein directed the acclaimed documentary The Business of Being Born, executive produced by Ricki Lake. Heralded as a “must-see for every pregnant woman,” The Business of Being Born premiered at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival where it was named among the “Best of the Fest” by New York Magazine and The Wall Street Journal. The Business of Being Born was released theatrically in 2008 and had its television premiere on Showtime. The success of the film inspired Abby and Ricki’s book “Your Best Birth,” which was published by Hachette’s Central Wellness. Their follow-up DVD series “More Business of Being Born” was released in 2011. Abby made her film directing debut at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival with the documentary feature, Until the Violence Stops, about Eve Ensler’s global V-Day movement.
