The Business of Being Born!

Ah.. have any of you ever watched this?

My sweet cousin is raving about me NEEDING to watch this.. she buying it and sending me a copy! She said it has everything from about having a birth plan to ‚Äčnavigating hospitals and even diapering. She said it's uber inspiring and uplifting for an expecting Mama!

So I would love to know (since I have yet to watch) have you seen it?

      Yes, I have seen it and appreciated the work they put into it. I haven't seen the sequel though called More Business of Being Born.

      Well, my perspective will be a bit different as I watched this after I had five hospital births and maybe even 1 or 2 home births under my belt. I WISH I had watched it before my first.

      When we had our first we were not our own advocates. We followed the doctor's orders without really questioning, well, I questioned, I always have questions but not in an advocate sense.

      I appreciated that the movie just confirmed what I already knew/and know that birth is normal. This may step on toes, but far too many births go wrong in the hospital because of TOO many interventions. Seriously. If doctors, nurses and hospitals were not so worried about lawsuits or getting home on schedule, births would take place much more naturally even in a hospital setting.

      That's all I'll say....... :) It's been a while since I watched it anyways.
