Orgasmic Birth, directed by Debra Pascali-Bonaro
The continuum: Theatre - Matinee - Rental - Discount rental - Library
I would watch this movie in the theatre.
This documentary is about the empowering birth experience. The catchy title draws you in, doesn't it? And yes, they show a real live orgasm. But that's not all that it's about. It's about how many women --- more than meets the eye --- can enjoy childbirth and allow the natural process to empower themselves. The woman is reborn into a mother as the child enters the world.
Like The Business of Being Born, this movie takes a look at modern obstetric care and is appalled at the devolution we as a nation have taken.
I watched this movie at the recent gathering of the local birth professionals community. I brought my son. I was so happy to see other women bringing their (albeit older) children to see what a birth looks like. Birth education is one of the fundamental things we as a nation lack.
I will watch this movie again... without the interruptions by a four-month-old that won't sit still.
