For all you home birth mama's out there or anyone wondering about it, The Business of Being Born is a great documentary with some really beautiful home birth scenes. And lots of food for thought about the medicalization of birth. Don't know if it is available at Blockbuster or the like, but Netflicks has it and its even a "watch it now", so no waiting if you have a good internet connection.
I've already seen it twice, had my DH watch it after we found out we were expecting. Thought it might scare him as he hasn't had much exposure to births, but he seemed to enjoy it

Yes a very good movie. Also there is a movie called "Birth as We know It"... tons of natural childbirths... a beautiful movie!

I'd also recommend looking at "Orgasmic Birth"
