To be honest, I didn't really like TBOBB either. It was good enough to watch, but not something that would aid in the development of a semi-educated opinion about midwives/homebirth in the US. I would really like to see more normal birth documentaries....but not this one.
I tried to watch 'more business of being born' on netflix.
Yeah..Ricki was really coming off as an illogical sycophant the way she gushed over Ina May (later gifting her with a butt plug?). The gushing she should have saved that for off the camera - IMO she just looked silly. I would loved to have heard more from Ina and less (ok, much, much less) of Ricki.
The part I turned it off at was when Ricki and Abby were both (again, IMO) attempting to pressure Ina and the 2nd midwife to connect hospital birth and medication with autism and the like.
It was irritating to me, not because I have had all home births and non vax and STILL have an autistic child - but, irritating because it ranked up there with the same as Micheal Odent's "c-section/love" theory.
People should really only talk about what they KNOW. A c-section doesn't keep a mama from loving and getting a shot of drugs during an excruciating labor doesn't mean the kids going to have autism.
I don't know who elected some of these people as mouth pieces for 'alternative' medicine, but I shudder....really shudder.
