Alyson and Kim Rowe (healer, thinker, mother, awesome friend) talk about the birth scene from Episode 7 of Fleishman is in Trouble, starring Claire Danes as Rachel Fleishman and Jesse Eisenberg as Toby Fleishman. The scene of the birth of their first child is shown from both points of view, we are primarily discussing the one from Rachel’s point of view. One of the most raw and honest depictions we’ve seen about the myriad complications that can arise when in labor. We texted each other after watching it and have discussed the show in depth.
We’re grateful for the opportunity to talk about it here, join us.
