A classic, timeless. film from Brazil in 1979 that teaches much more than birthing in the squatting position. Simply observing body language, you observe women in this culture relaxing into labor contractions. Close up views show how a perineum stretches on its own without time pressures or interventions. 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.
