Suzanne Arms' acclaimed birth film. Beloved by parents, midwives, doulas and birth educators for showing the difference between the medical-hospital paradigm for birth and the natural, normal biological model, also known as the Midwife Model of Care.
Upright, active labor. Birth on birthing stool. No full frontal nudity. Features 3 obstetricians and a labor, a labor and delivery nurse, and a nurse-midwife speaking about the importance of natural birth, home birth, and the empowerment of women.
Also has 1 hour of bonus material, including delayed cord cutting, birth of the placenta, breastfeeding, father-baby skin-to-skin bonding, and sibling bonding and the midwife speaking about home birth.
