    A Modern Day Viewpoint of Natural Childbirth

    Natural Born Babies presents a modern account of today's natural childbirth. Told by 10 mothers, this program chronicles their journeys to challenge the conventional hospital birth model to give birth in their own way.

    Resurgence interest in natural childbirth has led a record number of women to midwife-directed centers, where high-quality care combined with a nurturing environment is at the forefront of a movement. This movement seeks to dispel the inaccurate picture and practices of modern Western medicine. Gone are the days when midwifery was primitive and outdated. The modern midwife is presented in this film as she puts women and children first.

    Lorri Walker, RNC, NP, CNM, one of Southern California's best-known midwives, shares her insights and wisdom overcoming the medical model of birth. Birth professionals often overlook and disregard important subjects about birth. Hear an honest account of birth plans, Cesarean Sections, safety, unnecessary interventions and reluctant fathers as they are addressed - perfect for persuading any skeptic.

    This program attempts to separate midwifery from a tarnished reputation and years of misinformation and negative publicity that has been propagated by the medical community.

  • "A powerful argument for natural birth." - Dr. Sarah Buckley

  • "Everything I'd want people to know about evidence-based care and choice in birth." - From the Birth Matters Virginia Judging Panel

    New Release! When "test tube" baby, Louise Brown, was born in England in 1978, she was considered a miracle of modern medical science; today, a "test tube" baby is born every day somewhere in the world. In North America alone there are more than 300 centers that practice in vitro fertilization (IVF), fertilization outside the human body, and the best report "pregnancy rates of more than 30 percent per cycle after embryo transfer." Despite this success, the basic human desire to have children and traditional beliefs in technology continue to clash in the world of reproductive medicine. This enlightening documentary explores the ethical dilemmas created by new treatments for infertility and the story of one couple's quest for treatment; it features many renown specialists in IVF, including William Schoolcraft, M.D., who runs a successful IVF clinic in Colorado; Howard Jones, M.D., called the "father of IVF in America," he performed the first successful IVF procedure in the U.S.; Art Caplan, Ph. D., director of the Center for Bioethics at the Univ. of PA, Philadelphia, a prominent bio-ethicist; Glenn McGee, Ph.D., author of Pragmatic Bioethics, and editor of The American Journal of Bioethics; Gay Becker, Ph.D., Adjunct Professor of Medical Anthropology, School of Medicine, UC/San Francisco; Gregory Stock, Ph.D., director of the Program on Medicine, Technology, and Society at UCLA's School of Public Health, and author of Redesigning Humans: Our Inevitable Genetic Future; and Madeline Licker Feingold, Ph.D., an experienced infertility counselor with the Alta Bates IVF Program in California. In this evenhanded account we see how opinions and attitudes about technology and gender identity surround infertility, which can make decision making especially difficult; also we see doctors and patients are trying their best to make responsible decisions in an area of medicine that has few rules and no assurances.
