I just got finished watching this awesome documentary about the state of our birthing industry, courtesy of the Orange County Public Library. If you plan on giving birth int his lifetime, this is a MUST watch. The film does a great job of summarizing the differences between homebirth and hospital birth so that you can make an informed choice about which setting is safest for you and baby. (Hint: for normal pregnancies, it’s NOT the hospital). One of the best kept secrets in our country is that women can be transformed and empowered by their birth experience, and once you view this movie, you will begin to understand how far our culture has strayed from this knowledge.
The creators also just launched a social networking website called mybestbirth.com. Check it.
