We're Getting Mixed Signals

One of the most poignant moments of the film was when the camera panned to a newborn's hospital bassinet — a card with tips for breastfeeding success was taped to the side of it and a bottle of formula directly below it.

"I think our healthcare system is failing women. I don't want to soften that up because I actually feel that very strongly," Ben-Ari told us. "So I think it's definitely failing women by telling them one thing but then undermining them and making it very difficult for them to follow through. And I think that's where the pressure and the guilt come from. And that seems to me like a pretty strong vibe throughout the film."
