I saw it. I feel like Business of Being Born did a much better job of being Pro NCB/Home Birth. I feel like this movie was way more propaganda than actual fact. I just hate when people go off the deep end and make whatever they are arguing for sound ridiculous. This goes for anything. If you just stick to the facts then you sound way more intelligent.
That being said it has some good info, but it has all the same interviews that Business does. I liked the look at Holland. My FIL was born at home in Holland! He was supportive of a home birth when we were discussing (MIL was NOT).
It's interesting but very much like The Business of Being Born.
Although it was a bit more touching for me because one of the professional opinions (the anthropologist from Texas) burst into tears at one point....
They did draw some things out and some things I would have liked to see differently, but overall I think it was great. Like you all said, it was very similar to Business, but I haven't seen that in 2 years, so it's not quite fresh on my mind. Maybe that's why I really liked it. I loved how it addressed Cytotec and I loved how they went to other countries to kind of show you how home births are normal over there. That one woman was like, "In America, it's normal for you to have births in a hospital?" LOL I will say that there were several parts that made me cry! But, that's nothing new these days.
Thank you for my beautiful siggy Vicki!
