A Renewed Boost for Mothers and Midwives

A new set of educational films need financial support to make them available .

 “More Business of Being Born” is our new series of four  films that deepens the conversation about childbirth options, supporting every woman’s right to empowerment and accurate information during the birth process.   We’ve also completed a 28-minute Classroom Version of “The Business of Being Born” with a comprehensive study guide to reach younger women in University settings.

This is where we need your help.  We’ve made these films with a microscopic budget, once again funded out of our own pockets.  The original filmmaking team has worked for free, but we’ve come as far as we can on our own.  We made these films because we wanted women to question the established business of birth – the idea that every birth is an emergency requiring doctors, painkillers and myriad medical procedures. We’ve reached the conclusion that a healthier birthing process means healthier babies and healthier moms; however, our films can’t have any impact if they are not seen. We need a budget to promote and market these videos, to make sure that they reach as many expectant parents as possible. To acquire that budget, we need your help.

To help go here

This is a great endeavor. to make available the knowledge of options and remove any myth of doctor and midwife in the process of birthing. Use a midwife!
