“As a supporter of undisturbed birth, I’ve waited a long time for a film like this! Orgasmic Birth is much more than a film about how to experience pleasure in birth. It’s about viewing birth as a natural bodily function, rather than an inherently dangerous, painful medical event that needs to be managed, controlled and medicated. It’s about tapping into our own natural resources, instead of turning ourselves over to the medical establishment to “save” us from ourselves. Any natural bodily function proceeds best when it’s done in privacy, and this is what the women in the film advocate. Unfortunately, most members of the medical profession pretend that birth isn’t sexual, yet it involves the same hormones, organs and emotions as sex. When we recognize the inherent sexuality of childbirth, overcome our fears and inhibitions, and keep strangers away as much as possible, birth CAN be ecstatic if not orgasmic. It certainly was for me. I highly recommend this film, and know it is destined to change the way society views our most intimate act of creation. We do NOT have to choose between a medicated, medically managed birth and a painful, difficult “natural” one. There is a third choice and Debra Pascali-Bonaro has found it!
