excellent film about birth
5 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Given the misinformation and many distortions that most Americans carry around in their heads about pregnancy and birth, it is crucial that more people see films like this one. It educates while absorbing the viewer in a wonderful maze of commentary and experiences about birth WITHOUT unnecessary medical interventions. Not only has medicalized birth created a "climate of doubt" that serves no one well, it has produced worsening outcomes from a purely medical standpoint. THis film will help viewers understand why bringing back physiologic birth is so important to enhancing such a life-changing moment as well as to improving the outcomes of births in this country (where we have a rather dismal track record in comparison to other countries in Europe, for ex.).
