The Business of Being Born

If you have not yet seen this documentary, you need to. The medical industry and the media have convinced us that we need hospital intervention to give birth, and in particular, that we need cesarian sections because the babies are in danger if they come out any other way. Educate yourself about hospital’s hidden agendas behind pushing a cesarian section on you. Birth is not a medical procedure or a surgery… it is not something to expedite or sedate… It is the most beautiful and transcendent process a human being can go through. Women have been giving birth naturally for millennia. Don’t let the medical community convince you that you are not healthy enough or capable enough to do it on your own. Learn about the competence of midwives, and reduce your own fear and stigma about home births.
