Through the usage of Cabbage Patch Kids to craft a make-believe world this film examines the discourse surrounding childbirth and motherhood in the American South. Audio interviews of mothers, doulas, and birth professionals create a visual exploration of cabbage birthing myths and fairytales throughout history, and its connection to the lack of candid discussion about birthing.    

Screening in the JoJo Shorts Block.
