5.0 out of 5 stars A Vitally Important, Truthful, Informative Film!, February 28, 2010
As a graduate student I have studied childbirth for years, and I have come face-to-face with the staggering statistics which show us the damage that UNNECESSARY medical interventions enact upon mothers as well as their new babies; I also spend a good deal of time reflecting on the fact that such statistics about the medicalization of birth--which views birth, most basically, as akin to an illness or disease which needs treatment; reflect only physical damage, nevermind the emotional.

This film gently takes your hand, walking you down the path of a new way of seeing birth and women's bodies, in a way that is not preachy or intended to frighten. The experts featured in this film, including several MDs and OBGYNs, are phenomenal. This film IS about orgasmic birth, but understands "orgasmic" as akin to "ecstatic;" the film seeks to convey the message that birth can be and is, for many women left to birth on their own terms, an event not filled with horror but with extreme joy, pride, and triumph. For such women brave enough to take control of their own bodies and families the results can be life-changing.

EVERYONE should see this film, not just expectant women, as birth is a fundamental life event which affects us all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved Pavillion of Women, November 6, 2008
This book is wonderful--a captivating read, and Madame Wu is possibly the most dynamic, interesting, surprising and lovable character I've ever read. The story goes much deeper than you expect it to, and is ultimately an investigation into freedom, the spirit, and the nature of love and knowledge.
