FILM

Birth Time is a multi-award winning documentary shining a light on the maternity system which was produced in Australia but is relevant worldwide. Discussing birth in the context of the maternity system, the patriarchy, feminism, money, culture, human rights and featuring interviews with mothers and fathers about their birth experiences and many people from the birth world including Dr. Rachel Reed and Milli Hill of the Positive Birth Movement. It's a really beautiful and powerful film that everyone should watch! Warning - expect a flood of tears but also lots of laughs!
