Review

"Needless to say, this is not your typical birth video. In fact, this is not your typical birth in the USA, which is all the more reason that it should be shown, and often." Claudia Stearns - Doula

"If I only had one video to show my clients from now untl forever, this would be it." Nancy Wainer - midwife --Claudia Stearns, Training Director, BACE

"I spent most of my life as a fighter pilot and a paratrooper. I have no idea why I thought this video would interest me, but was positively captivated by it. "The music and the camera shots created an atmosphere of serenity and tranquility that just grew on me. If you are contemplating a home birth, this video will give you the motivation, insight, and confidence you need to start working seriously toward it. If you are not, it will enlighten you. Birth can be a joy that brings out the best in a family. It isn't the anxiety and discomfort many of us had always taken for granted." --Terry Buettner, Hendersonville, NC

"As a childbirth educator, doula, and mother, I've watched countless birth videos. Without question, BIRTH DAY is the best video currently on the market. I live in the USA where in most cases birth has become more of a medical event than a life event. But BIRTH DAY gives viewers a chance to see a completely normal, natural home waterbirth, with the mother's family (including her other young children) in attendance. Viewers will be given the gift of spending a "birth day" with Naoli Vinaver Lopez and her family at their beautiful home in Xalapa, Mexico. To witness the love and support Naoli and her family share during her labor and birth, combined with beautiful music and narration, is nothing short of inspiring. I was so inspired that I too, had a home waterbirth! "Every pregnant woman and her family needs to see this video. It was also one of the few birth videos I felt was appropriate to show my then-3-year old son as we prepared for the birth of his brother. Basically, it should be required viewing for anyone planning to ever give birth!" --Ami Burns, Chicago, IL USA

From the Contributor

Giving birth..."isn't something that somebody else has to do for you in order for it to come out good. If a woman who is pregnant has that sense of trust...she has no need to feel afraid. I do hope that people will trust again what the process of being pregnant and giving birth has as outcomes; A child that is full of life and a mother who is full of milk and just enjoys having a child." Naoli Vinaver Lopez, mother, midwife, star
