It is more of a surgical procedure where powerful drugs and unnecessary caesarean sections have become commonplace. Come see a DVD featuring interviews with three doctors who capture the spirit, the science and the beauty of the homebirth experience. Share moments of joy as two families bring you into their homes on the day their child was born! There will be a in depth discussion with professionals and parents to address pros/cons, facts/myths after the film.
