SOUTH SIMCOE - A film exposing the ethics of the industry that has sprung up around childbirth will be airing in Innisfil Friday night.

Milk follows stories of mothers from different cultures on a journey spanning 11 countries, as it reveals the universal issues and challenges facing motherhood and birth today.

Milk investigates the overarching themes surrounding the commercialization of infant feeding and its effects on child mortality, as well as the challenges it presents to new mothers battling to get the appropriate medical support, and the judgment placed on women regardless of how they choose to feed their babies. Milk also contrasts the roots of Mother Nature juxtaposed with the institutional industrialized way in which we receive a new life into this world.

The special viewing of this documentary takes place at Innisfil ideaLAB and Library, Lakeshore Branch on Friday, Oct. 6 at 7 p.m. Admission is free.

Milk is being presented by the Innisfil Library in collaboration with the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit.
