Wish more people would see it. Especially docs and nurses.

Re: just watched

It was kind of ho-hum to me. Maybe because I was having home births 10 years ago and kind of knew everything in it already?

My husband watched it with me, and it was really good for him. I think it's pretty guy-friendly, really.

Re: just watched

Loved it. Knew a lot of the information in there, but I was examining it from an educational standpoint, not for my own benefit. Thought it was a real eye opener for people who never though twice about the obstetrical care in the US.

Absolutely! It was this movie that convinced my DH that midwives are competent birth aids and not 'crazy hippy baby catchers.'
