An emotional personal documentary about one woman's struggle with redfining womanhood after a radical hysterectomy.
26 April 2002 | by AngelMc55See all my reviews

Judith Helfand's "A Healthy Baby Girl" is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It is the story of a woman who is researching DES, a drug used to ensure full term pregnancies. She finds that she herself was a DES baby and was diagnosed with cancer. The film is her struggle through a radical hysterectomy and her lawsuit against the company that manufactured the drug.

Helfand and her family explore womanhood, motherhood, and cancer together in a touching and honest way. Judith is an eloquent filmmaker and If you have a mother or a daughter you are sure to get a lot out of this film.
