OBirth Design Competion Extended thru end of year
“Pregnancy and childbirth can be an empowering experience for women. Unfortunately the models of care currently available in many parts of the world is disempowering women, overusing interventions (such as epidurals, caesarean-sections, oxytocin drips, and episiotomy) and transforming a physiological event in a biomedical procedure. Orgasmic Birth reminds us of the glory of women’s bodies, capable of metamorphosing in the journey into motherhood. Watching this film helps us re-think our role as maternity care providers and ‘gate-keepers’ of a ‘good’ birth. The sexual nature of childbirth is unexplored territory and a taboo for many of us but the film portrays beautifully what normal birth is about, through women's intimate stories and experiences of having orgasmic births, and how we can re-examine what we think we know about the act of giving birth. Working as an obstetrician and researcher, being a mother and a women’s health and rights activist, I feel this is a powerful documentary that can help create awareness of the power and possibility that birth can bring for women around the globe.”

" We are at a crossroads in our society as women take on a more equal role and question, will the feminine, sexual side of ourselves have to be sacrificed if we are to be full participants in the modern world? Are pregnancy and childbirth perilous disorders that need to be managed and controlled by modern medicine? Orgasmic Childbirth, a link to the knowledge of past generations of midwives and childbirth activists, gives us a different path. Childbirth can be a challenging, difficult, joyous sexual experience. This is a movie that gives women courage, resources and inspiration to enable them to actively participate in the life-changing experience of childbirth. Thank you!" Ginny Cassidy-Brinn, ARNP, Director of Well Woman Services, Cedar River Clinics, Seattle, WA
