Home Birth: The Spirit, The Science and The Mother May 11, 2007

This movie looks hella cool. I’m sure it’d be a great investment for midwives or childbirth educators. I wish I could justify spending $39.99 to watch it online myself. 😉

Home Birth: The Spirit, The Science and The Mother

© 2006 Sage Femme. Running time: 46 min. includes interviews with Dr. Marsden Wagner, Dr. Jeanine Tgettis and Dr. Fred R. Duhart as well as joyful footage from two Home Births.

Dr. Tgettis rocks her three day old baby (Bella was born footling breech at home) as she explains her desire in having a home birth was to keep everything simple and normal. Dr. Marsden Wagner (scientist, neonatalogist, officer in the World Health Organization) talks about his passion of many years for honoring mothers and keeping birth safe. Dr. Wagner is joined by the Wright Family of Rockport, MA as they celebrate the arrival of baby Griffin. Dr. Fred R. Duhart (family physician in St. Louis, MO) has attended hundreds of home births. He is joined by the Jurczyk family at the birth of baby Benjamin.

Home Birth Series

Sage Femme is committed to finding, producing and distributing the broadest selection of natural birth videos available. Why? Because many of us have nearly forgotten or have never seen what a natural birth looks like. In 2005, the cesarean section rate in the US was the highest in recorded history – 29.1%. This along with the damaging and pervasive use of drugs and the negative images the media presents has evolved a state of cultural amnesia about the normal process of childbirth. Sage Femme’s Natural Birth Series was created to show us what safe birth really looks like. The aim is to restore our faith in birth, rekindle our love of nature’s design, and show the benefits of babies arriving in peace.

    I’m glad to know of this resource – I get questions aout homebirth sometimes, and when it’s a pregnant woman considering homebirth, this sounds like it would be a good film to recommend.

    I found Sage Femme’s blog a couple of weeks ago – she is so strong and common-sense. I wish more people thought along the lines she does, in life as well as birth.
