Recommended viewing: Face of Birth

A little while ago I gave a shout-out on Facebook and Twitter for my new favourite doco Face of Birth… I have serious heart-love for this film and feel like everyone should clap their eyes on it – particularly prospective parents.

Last week Sarah and I took part in the last round of  Capers’ Complementary Therapies Workshops. Spending the day talking about pregnancy and birthing with a group of loud and lovely midwives reinforced why I enjoy working in this area so much.

Through the clinic we see all sorts of people: suits, students, snotty kids… but pregnancy care is a particular favourite and it’s a true privilege to be part of that experience with our patients.

The lead-up to pregnancy and birth is a time of such change, learning and excitement. It’s also an excellent opportunity to get focused on good health practices, which will support a happy pregnancy, positive birth experience and a healthy little bub at the end of it.

Getting back to my film-spruiking, you might be lucky enough to live near a screening (they’re popping up all over Australia) or you can buy your very own copy to watch at home – take a look at the Face of Birth website for more info.

Here’s a little clip to give you a taste. Enjoy!
