I watched it, skeptically, for the first time tonight. I LOVED it!! I had no idea what I was going to see and to be honest the fact Ricki Lake was in it kind of turned me off (I remember her show from the 90s time frame..)

Dh watched one birth toward the end with me. I fully plan on having him watch the entire thing. I learned so much. I am so thankful for all of you who suggested it for him (and me)! I think this will be a great tool for him to open up to me and ask questions and for him to have questions ready to talk with the midwife. This may be just what we need to fully prepare over the next few months for our natural birth (free standing birth center)

Glad you liked it.  Some other things to watch include More Business of Being Born (available on Netflix in a 4 part series), Pregnant in America, and Orgasmic Birth (<-fabulous, just have to have an open mind about the title- it's much more about the importance of birth in it's physiological state and not orgasms, lol).

I absolutely loved the film, Orgasmic Birth, though initially I dragged my heels at watching it because I HATED the name and thought I was going to be watching porn  :)

you should watch the second one, More Business Of Being Born. 

I actually love Ricki Lake and she is a huge natural birth advocate and a doula, I even watch her show she has now.

I became a big Ricky fan after BOBB, and was excited when I heard she was getting a show.. And then she did the circumcision topic, kinda killed the party for me.. But glad to see she is back & in the spot light to bring awareness to natural birth.

I loved that documentary. I was on the fence and that movie really helped me decide what i want in the future as far as laboring without meds.

Thank you! I will look into those other movies as well. I plan on watching More Business of Being Born later this weekend. It was late when I finished BOBB so I decided being up all night wasn't a good idea ;)
