A selection of films and documentaries on labour and birth, and anthropological information on babies and how to parent them to enable them to thrive optimally,  that we’ve found useful, interesting and inspiring!

What Babies Want – An exploration of the consciousness of infants.  A fascinating insight into how babies interact with the world, and what they need to thrive.  Sadly, the original website for this has now disappeared, but I found the documentary on YouTube.

Orgasmic Birth Watch this film and get in on the worlds best-kept secret: labour and birth can be pleasurable – even ecstatic. Better yet, pleasurable birth enhances the health of both mother and baby and creates a positive foundation for a lifetime.” – Christiane Northrup, MD FACOG

The Business of Being Born – A straight-talking documentary about birth in the US

Inner Strength– Website originally in German, but the page can be translated and the trailer downloaded.  The music is a little ‘intrusive’, but the actual births shown are magical and inspiring to watch, and beautifully demonstrate how much support partners can give 🙂

Birth As We Know It – The film beautifully illustrates what it really takes to prepare for conscious birth and deliver a baby gracefully, minimizing trauma for all involved.” A very spiritual film about birth, and if you sign up for the newsletter, you get to watch the 25 minute educational version for FREE 🙂
