A most important film about the joys of birthing!
31 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first viewed Orgasmic Birth last June at a screening for professionals in Portland Oregon. I watched it as a doula, a mother and a mentor and it both overjoyed me and saddened me. The missing piece of our modern birth practice is pleasure, and mention the word...eyes roll and the sarcasm starts. Orgasmic Birth shows real birth settings, real women and men, and it serves to encourage, enlighten and educate in a positive way...to counter the negatives we see in popular culture and in the news so frequently. I ask all my clients to watch Orgasmic Birth, even, and especially, the ones who are birthing in a hospital setting, so they can see the organic process take place and balance their fears with the truth...birth can be beautiful, peaceful and fulfilling. Thank you for this beautifully made film.
