Natural Born Babies presents a modern account of today’s natural childbirth. Told by 10 mothers, this short film chronicles their journeys to challenge the conventional hospital birth model to give birth in their own way. Resurgence in interest in natural childbirth has led a record number of women to midwife-directed centers, where high-quality care combined with a nurturing environment is at the forefront of a movement. This movement seeks to dispel the inaccurate picture and practices of modern Western medicine. Gone are the days when midwifery was primitive and outdated. The modern midwife is presented in this film as she puts women and children first.
Listen as Lorri Walker, RNC, NP, CNM, one of Southern California’s best-known midwives, shares her insights and wisdom in overcoming the medical model of birth. Birth professionals often overlook and disregard important subjects about birth. Hear an honest account of birth plans, Cesarean Sections, safety, unnecessary interventions and reluctant fathers and family as they are addressed – perfect for persuading any skeptic. This film attempts to separate midwifery from a tarnished reputation from years of misinformation and negative publicity that has been propagated by the medical community.
This full length version has never been released to the public and contains bonus features, including a virtual tour of South Coast Midwifery, narrated by Lorri Walker, a shorter 10 minute version and behind the scene out takes.
