Movie- Orgasnic Birth

so i just saw this movie and overall it was really good! i know most moms don't think of having an orgasm during birth and that was just a very small part of the movie but it showed 11 couple giving birth most at home but a few in the hospital and i thought it was really interesting. it was very refreshing to see positive births not just the screaming in a hospital where everyone is counting and yelling at you to push Smile

has anyone else seen it? thoughts?

I have not seen that movie, but I have seen other clips about orgasmic birth. I have done nothing to prepare for such an event (if it's possible to prepare?) but I think it would be SO COOL to have that happen!!! I mean, REALLY!!! But, I am birthing in a hospital, so the chances... I don't know... my doula says she's seen it once, in a hospital...

I haven't seen it, but now I want to! I think it'd be awesome to see positive births portrayed. Off to order it.

I saw it and LOVED it!!

I do think they did the film a disservice by calling it Orgasmic Birth though. It really did only touch on that subject at the end a bit. Which I think is awesome, but the title will most definitely prevent some people from ever agreeing to watch it.

It rates right up there with TBOBB for me, as far as good information about the truth about birth choices. Also, I loved the all star cast of Dr's, midwives and other professionals. They got every big name.

Yeah, loved it.

I'll have to check it out. We saw TBOBB a couple years ago, but I may want to see that again too. I find it hard to believe that at orgasm could happen during birth though.

I love TBOBB, but yeah... I think I'm one of the people turned off by the "orgasmic birth" title. I do believe orgasm during labor can happen for some people, but it's not really a goal of mine, I guess.

Ditto. We saw a video in our last HB class that was not about orgasmic birth per se, but one of the women featured was definitely having that experience and it was seriously uncomfortable to watch! I believe it can happen--sex and birth are intricately related processes, after all!--but I wouldn't watch a movie that I thought was all about that, since I honestly think dwelling on sexuality, especially with other people in the room, would make me feel more self-conscious and less relaxed, which is the OPPOSITE of what I need to be focusing on during my birthing.

Good to know it has value as a NCB movie in general!

You can rent it online from Amazon.com. It's 1.99 for a 7 day rental. You might be able to do it from Apple and/or Netflix too
