The song "This Woman's Work" plays over a scene in this episode. This song was written and recorded by Kate Bush specifically for a dramatic childbirth scene toward the end of the 1988 John Hughes movie She's Having a Baby. The lead actress in that film, Elizabeth McGovern (who played the eponymous character having a baby), also played Moira in the 1990 film adaptation of The Handmaid's Tale. See more
