Heads Up

The disappearing art of vaginal breech delivery

“Why are most physicians no longer offering vaginal breech delivery? Fear of liability? Peerpressure? Bullying by insurance companies? Or were they just never taught how? The documentary film Heads Up: The Disappearing Art of Vaginal Breech Delivery (produced by prenatal chiropractor Dr. Elliot Berlin, DC) answers these questions. As aging doctors skilled in vaginal breech delivery cease to practice, the vaginal option for breech birth is disappearing at a rapid rate.

The Business of Being Born

Birth: it's a miracle. A rite of passage. A natural part of life. But more than anything , birth is a business. Compelled to find answers after a disappointing birth ...

This documentary, directed by Abby Epstein, examines the ways that the American health care system approaches childbirth. The traditional form of U.S. birth involves hospitals, drugs and obstetricians, while births in many other countries utilize midwives. Interviews with parents and medical experts explain the realities of maternity care. When Epstein discovers that she is pregnant herself, the discussion becomes less theoretical, as she must decide which form of birthing she will employ.

Birth Story

Ina May Gaskin & Midwives

Birth Story: Ina May Gaskin and The Farm Midwives captures a spirited group of women who taught themselves how to deliver babies on a 1970s hippie commune, rescued modern midwifery from extinction, and changed the way a generation thought about childbirth. Today, as nearly 1/3 of all US babies are born via C-section, they labor on, fighting to preserve their knowledge and pushing, once again, for the rebirth of birth.
