When we were expecting Jemma I didn’t quite know how I was going to ease Dominic into the whole “natural birth” philosophy … luckily, there are a number of fabulous documentaries/movies that give a real life perspective plus statistics about the benefits of natural birth.
Dominic was game for a movie night and because of it, I found my perfect natural parenting partner :)
The Business of Being Born was one of the movies we watched together and I am thrilled that More Business of Being Born is alive and kicking!
More Business of Being Born, a follow up to [Ricki Lake’s] landmark documentary, The Business of Being Born, offers a practical look at birthing options as well as poignant celebrity birth stories from stars.
Featuring celebrity moms Laila Ali, Gisele Bundchen, Cindy Crawford, Alyson Hannigan, Melissa Joan Hart, Kellie Martin, Alanis Morissette, Christy Turlington-Burns and Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Special Deliveries is a collection of intimate birth stories from a diverse group of mothers. Whether they chose to deliver at a hospital, home or birthing center, these heartfelt and humorous testimonies speak to the lasting power of the birth experience. True inspiration for any mother-to-be, this group of women trusted their bodies and intuitions, taking responsibility for their birth decisions even when things didn’t go according to plan. None of these courageous women has ever spoken on the record in such compelling detail, and, on this DVD, the filmmakers weave together their passionate narratives as a celebration of the journey to motherhood that will leave viewers with a renewed sense of amazement about the power of women.
Take a peak at this live interview with Ricki Lake and some other fabulous ladies …

What do you think? Did media play a role in your birthing choices? Did “seeing” the real deal help your spouse get on board with your plans?
