Fundraiser screenings for the California Association of Midwives!
Location: 600 4th St, West Sacramento (that's the corner of 4th & F in West Sac - parking lot is right off of F Street between 4th & 5th).
A documentary that examines the intimate nature of birth and the powerful role it plays in women's lives when they are permitted to experience it fully.
Powerful, passionate and thought provoking, Orgasmic Birth dismantles untruths about labor and birth that women have been told for generations. This intimate documentary captures stunning moments of women in the ecstatic release of childbirth. Birth is revealed as an integral part of woman's sexuality and a neglected human right. As obstetrician-gynecologist Christiane Northrup warns in the film, we have been brainwashed to view birth not as a natural process, but as an emergency waiting to happen. The way women are cared for as their babies enter the world can profoundly affect both the mother's and infant's health and well-being. Experience the intimate, sensuous nature of birth as women and their partners offer their personal solutions. Feel the passion in this everyday miracle.
Panel discussions to follow each screening.
