    They'll release it here when they have a deal over here I think... waiting for a big company to fork out perhaps. But no plans as yet.

    I've put on three screenings since December last year and there has been a screening with another group too, so I don't think it will happen anytime soon...

    I confirmed with the BOBB team and they said they are waiting for deals to distribute the film here and put it on TV too.

    I watched this documentary a couple of nights ago and I highly recommend it. Although a lot of the content is directed at what is happening in the US in regards to birthing, I still think that it is highly approriate for what also seems to be an increasing trend in Australia.

    While the documentary hasn't convinced me to have a home-birth when I am lucky enough to fall pregnant, it HAS confirmed my current choices in my natural birth-plan and made me feel more confident not only in my choices, but in my faith in my own body.

    I hope everyone else that has seen the documentary has enjoyed it, and gained as much from it as I have

    I watched this with DF on saturday night and I have to say

    THANKYOU

    to belly belly for putting this out there and promoting this doco - had it not been for you guys I probably would not have heard of this and would have gone on to use my ob. (even with everythign else I have read on BB etc I sstill wanted my ob, until I watched this)

    YOU HAVE SAVED ME NEARLY $3,000.00!!!!!!!!!!

    I am now booking in to the labour ward (birthing centre full but looks promising that they might be able to fit me in - not quite sure how that works??!!) so hopefully natural no drug, no intervention delivery here we come!!!

    And probably alot more besides, Kitt3n

    It's great that you got so much from the film...I think the beauty of it is that it conveys so well what alot of us here bang on about, day in day out - in such a powerful way! Wonderful film, I can't wait to see it again Good luck for your birth!

    Does anyone know if you can Buy it here yet? or when or where I could see it... would love to have it at home as I would love for my DS and DD1 to be at the birth of number 4 not the I am even UTD yet LOL but think it would be good for them to see what a birth would be like...

    Would it be a good thing for them to see before they see me or not ?
