(September 11, 2008 – San Francisco) What happens to a mother and child the first few months after birth? From the physiological, emotional and psychological perspective, people are exploring the boundaries between work and motherhood in America.

The current discussion and awareness about what happens when a baby arrives is making national news. According to this week’s front page article in The New York Times, “Fusing Politics with Motherhood in a New Way” (Sept. 8, 2008), Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin stated that she would not take much time off, having returned to work the day after giving birth to her child.

From the award-winning and international producers of “BIRTH” comes “BORN”, a public radio journey about the postpartum experience in contemporary American life looking at the ways in which a woman, a family, society evolve after birth. “BORN” seeks answers to the following question: How do our societal, professional and governmental systems support new mothers and families after a child is born?

“BORN” is nationally distributed by Public Radio International (PRI) and available to public radio stations from September 2008 – September 2009.

With questions of early motherhood and work at the center of today’s public debate, please request “BORN” be aired on your local public radio station.
