What is Freedom for Birth? This powerful excerpt from freedomforbirth.com tells just a little bit about this worldwide revolution.

  • “Freedom for Birth” is more than just a film. It marks the beginning of a movement that will focus global attention on the violations of women’s rights during childbirth all around the world.
  • All women should have the right, protected by law, to decide where and how they give birth.
  • The problem is that the rise of a dominant obstetric “machine” is robbing women of this right.
  • The result is that many women are being subjected to medical interventions and c-sections they neither want or need.
  • Tragically, midwives, the very guardians of normal birth, are being persecuted and criminally prosecuted to the extent that some have even been imprisoned.
  • “Freedom for Birth” will highlight the human rights abuses happening right now in North America, Europe, Australia and beyond.
  • And, the film will offer up a solution that can help protect womens’ rights
  • And that solution involves you!
