Premieres Tuesday, October 21 at 9 pm
A growing movement of women in the US and in the UK are defying medical advice and choosing to give birth with no drugs, no midwife and absolutely no medical support. Supporters claim it's how having a baby was always meant to be. Doctors say this new 'freebirthing' craze carries great risks.
In this program, we chart the stories of three pregnant women who have decided to go against the advice of their doctors and go it alone. With intimate access, we follow the challenges they have to overcome from negative family opinions and medics, to their own fears and through to the eventual and extraordinary births.
Watch the premiere, Tuesday, October 21 at 9 pm on Discovery Health!
Well, you know, it's crazy not to have a doctor! It's really important to go out and hire someone to take authority over your life and the welfare of you and your children. It's not like women can get educated about birth and think for themselves! /sarcasm
I really can't imagine anyone actually freebirthing doing so because it's a "craze".
