When Steve's wife, Mandy, became pregnant, he immediately saw that something was wrong with the way women were being treated in the American maternity system.
He thought a movie would help create a better environment for women in the US. Pregnant in America is a motivational, and inspirational documentary made by film maker Steve Buonagurio about the birth of his daughter Bella.
Shocked by the greed of U.S. hospitals, insurance companies and medical organizations, Steve and his wife Mandy set out to create a natural home birth in a world where everything is anything but natural.
