Business of Being Born

Saturday, August 30, 2008

I just watched this movie. I harassed B into watching it with me. He was less excited about watching it than I was.

I was moved to tears frequently. The beauty of birth. The intimacy of the experience. The joy the love.

It convinced me that I want that. It made me mourn for the loss of the experience that was 'taken' under the guise of medical necessity. It was a very eye opening movie. All pregnant women should watch it.

I think I most appreciated the fact that they said that the pain of birth has been twisted to be something to be afraid of in our society and culture rather than something to be seen almost as a priveldge, a right of passage, something to be proud of. It went on to say that women are missing out on that power because of the fear that society has instilled in us.
