This is a classic, timeless film from Brazil in 1979 which teaches much more that birthing in the squatting position. You don’t hear labor sounds, but you see from the expressions on the women how they know to relax into the pain of labor contractions. Close up views show what a perineum stretching on its own, looks like. Primal behaviors are viewed where the mother is the first to touch her baby. This is a film that shows how far we have strayed today from birth as it was meant to be, for these women are giving birth – they are not being delivered. A short film worth its weight in gold that is a must see for any woman pregnant or soon to give birth.
