About the film...

“Orgasmic Birth”, directed and produced by Debra Pascali-Bonaro. Five years in the making, Orgasmic Birth challenges
cultural myths by revealing the emotional, spiritual, and physical heights attainable through birth. Viewers witness the passion of birth as 11 women have their babies in unhurried, non-medicalized settings—including hospital birth centers—where they feel supported and safe. According to birthing experts who provide commentary in the film, a pleasurable birth that is allowed to take its time is an integral part of women’s sexuality and
a neglected human right.

To learn more about the film see: http://www.orgasmicbirth.com/

Admission $10.00, profit to be donated Ina May Gaskin and the Safe Motherhood Quilt project http://rememberthemothers.net/

It sounds like fun. Don't forget, we'll be meeting our breastfeeding challenge at the viewing as well. See you all there.

I might be able to hold George off for his nap until noon. If it's a 3-hour film but I can only stay for 2 hours of it -- will I get to see some of the births in the first 2 hrs?

Can't wait to see you all there!

The film itself is about an hour and a half... we will start it around 10:30-10:45.
The entire event is set from 10-1:00 With networking, vendors and such from 10-10:30 and then the Q&A after the film from 12:15 -12:45.

Hope you can make it!

In efforts to coordinate this event with the Breastfeeding Challenge and start the film on time we discussed having someone hold up a sign at 11:00 to indicate the effort for the simultaneous worldwide 'latch on'.

What a way to wake up! I was nervous and am still riding the adreniline rush I think. I thought they were great about the whole thing, enough humor and "shock" to make their morning show interesting, but overall supportive and got the word out!

Yaa Julie.

Hey, this thread has over 100 views! Hope to see many faces tomorrow!

Hi Sue,
I just prepared a fresh batch of Pregnancy Tea and I'll be bringing some it of with me to the premier tomorrow. I'll be selling bags of the Well Woman Tea (aka: Pregnancy Tea), Wellness Tea Blend, Spearmint and Licorice, Red Raspberry and also Catnip Tea. They will be priced at $2.50 each.
smanore's Avatar smanore 11:18 PM 10-10-2008
Oh good. I'll pick some up there. I hadn't thought about selling stuff. Maybe I'll bring some good smelling soaps for LLL to sell.
