Bottled UP! is a documentary exposé about Breastfeeding in America. The mission of the documentary is not a small one – to restore the Phenomenon of the Nursing Mother to the cultural landscape of America.
The mantra is everywhere – “Breast is Best.” In the US 75% of all mothers attempt to breastfeed, but a startling few succeed. Despite overwhelming evidence that it is the healthiest way to feed a baby, a meager 15% of American women successfully breastfeed. This film asks, “Why?”
More than a breastfeeding promotion film, this is a film by, for, and about women. It is about the knowledge that inherently resides in every woman, how to access that knowledge and how to trust what we already know.
