Too often polarization occurs on the topic of home birth. By focusing on hospital birth providers who choose home birth, this 78-minute film brings a voice of moderation to the discussion. Together, we can move toward real improvements to maternity care in hospitals and at home.

Freedom for Birth


A 58 minute documentary that reframes women's birthing rights as one of the most pressing human rights issues in the world today. It features Hungarian midwife Ágnes Geréb who has been criminally prosecuted and has served time in prison for supporting women who chose home birth.



A new 60 minute documentary investigating the latest scientific research about the microscopic events happening during childbirth. These events could have life-long consequences for the health of our children and potentially could even impact mankind.



Featuring actual birth footage, DOULA! is a 50 minute documentary following birth doulas as they support three women through their births.

Informative and emotional, DOULA! is an intimate look at how doulas support both parents during pregnancy, labour, childbirth and afterwards.


Postpartum Doula


This is a ten minute film introducing the work of two postpartum doulas as they help new mothers after the birth of their babies. It is available to rent or buy here and is the perfect companion to the birth Doula! film.




With unexpected humor, with an unflinching camera, with some guilt and some pain, this film takes the unusual risk of examining what breast milk truly means.


We are often told that breast milk is better. Better for babies, better for mothers, better for nutrition, health, well-being, and society. Many accept this and yet there are still very few women who succeed in breastfeeding exclusively for the recommended six months and beyond. What would it take to change?


The Birth Community is hoping to show this documentary in 2017.
