Dear Friends and Family!

Birth of a New Earth is pleased to announce its second Conscious Birth Movie Night on Long Island. Due to the overwhelmingly positive response of our last showing, we will once again share Elena Tonetti’s groundbreaking film, "Birth As We Know It". For those who are interested in gentle birth and conscious parenting, and would like to learn more about home birth, water birth, ocean birth, and birth without technological interventions, this film is a must see. In this 90-minute documentary, Elena shares her experiences as one of the co-creators of the Conscious Birth movement in Russia, which included a revolutionary birth preparation program for the healing of unresolved relationship issues, emotional blockages, and past birth trauma. The program culminated in the creation of summer birth-camps at the Black Sea where women gave birth to their babies in warm shallow lagoons where dolphins are aplenty. The movie features eleven natural births, including home birth, water birth, ecstatic birth, birth of twins, breech delivery, and an astounding unassisted home birth by Tanya Sargunas – a world renowned Spiritual Midwife and pioneer of Conscious Birth in Russia. The midwifery community calls this film “the most profound and comprehensive guide to conscious birth in the world”, because it delivers a powerful transmission of what it really takes to give birth consciously and gracefully.

You don’t want to miss this folks. Viewing of the film will be followed by an open discussion and sharing. Those who have experienced past birth trauma will find this gathering invaluable.
