I just saw the movie "Orgasmic Birth", wow! Afterwards, filmmaker Debra Pascali-Bonaro and others held an open panel discussion. She has approached medical doctors. In two weeks she will co-present the movie with a doctor! Haha to make it more acceptable they're calling it "Organic Birth". Two panelist were from Puerto Rico. They said 48% c-section births there and 31.5% in the USA. C-sections and drugs can change the hormone sequence of birth. Interesting fact, two states, NY and Mass, passed laws that require hospitals to give mothers info about the hospital itself (I'll research this more).
The importance of healthy preparation and the 1hr mother/child bonding after birthing was shown as well as the healing potential for the mother. I believe in pre-conception preparation, including female orgasmic contractions during sex to condition the muscles. A mother who was molested as a child talked about her healing. One mom said she felt the knowledge of how to give birth come into her. Some had previous c-section births and switched. Many said they felt like "goddesses" and "empowered".
For me the movie was "hey this is the way it's supposed to be". I really wanted the babies to be held by their mothers, skin to skin, right after birth. I could feel my skin wanting contact. I feel a heightened sense of universal understanding. I recommend this movie for everyone.
Watching the active role the fathers took was touching. Continuously for hours before birth the fathers affectionately support and comfort their wives. One couple talked about a unique intimacy and bonding that took place. I liked the looks on the fathers' faces and their comments right after birth. Witnessing miracles can be life changing. I wondered if more couples bonded while sharing this most unique and special moment in time, if their relationships to each other and their children would be better.
