every pregnant woman should see this


I was browsing through some you tube videos about pregnancy when I came across a documentary called the business of being born. I hate pain and even though I gave birth one before, it was a traumatizing event that has stuck with me. Therefore I never imagined I would EVER consider having a natural birth or a birth that did not include a team of doctors close by. I must say though, this film was inspiring. It really makes you think and start to question giving birth as most of us know it. I strongly encourage you ladies to watch this and give me your feedback

An amazing eye opener. I was thinking about a home birth but now I'm pretty set on it in my mind.

Thank you so much for posting.

I made my mum watch it when she was against me having a home birth. It helped her understand my choice and she was more supportive afterwards which was great.

I watched it before having my first, I still chose hospital but it was a good starting point to understanding birth and the effect of interventions.

I think all pregnant women should watch it - not to scare them out of a hospital, but to show that there is an alternative to the "medical emergency" type birth that is portrayed in the media, and that there are some HCP that don't know this!
I think it is a very thought provoking film. I didn't discover it until after I'd had my LO, but it reinforced what I had discovered from my own research.

I think this relates more to the US, no? Making money is much less of a factor of care here in Canada as far as I know... I've never felt rushed by doctors here or felt as though I was just another $number$. If others have to/can wait so that you get the best care, then so be it.

But who knows maybe I'm in denial
