It was clear from the research we conducted that our maternity system is broken.
We have a postnatal depression epidemic, with suicide being the leading cause of maternal death in the developed world.
Birth trauma is rampant.
We have incredibly high intervention rates in birth, yet research shows that this is not leading to better outcomes for mothers and babies.
Globally, we are losing connection and trust in one of the most transformative, powerful, primal and pivotal rites of passage we will ever undertake in our lives.
We live in a time where it has become normal to disregard the importance of a woman’s experience of birth. It is not widely known that our birth and birthing experiences deeply impact the way we navigate the world.
Improving women’s experience of birth helps them set up a stronger bond with their babies, decreases their risk of postnatal depression and encourages them to trust their maternal instincts when it comes to mothering their children. Care, connection, respect and trust begin with the mother baby bond.
We made this documentary as a catalyst to educate, motivate action and instigate change.
When we improve women’s experiences around birth, we change the world!
