Over the past few years, homebirth has been positively featured in several documentary films.  A new “surge” in the movement was born when homebirth and the Midwifery Model of Care “broke through” into the mainstream with Ricki Lake’s and Abby Epstein’s, The Business of Being Born.

Other films to check out:

Birth as We Know It by Elena Tonetti-Vladimirova

Giving Birth by Suzanne Arms

Orgasmic Birth by Debra Pascali-Bonaro

Many of Maine’s homebirth midwives have a lending library where  you borrow these titles and other birth films.

Also, see Motherbaby International Film Festival

and the Free Birth Videos website.
