New Documentary Leads the Way
in Examining the Sensual Nature of Birth

A documentary that examines the intimate nature
of birth and the powerful role it plays in women’s
lives when they are permitted to experience it fully
NEW YORK, May 2008—Orgasmic Birth, a documentary film by internationally renowned childbirth educator, doula, and birth activist Debra Pascali-Bonaro, will have its world premiere on May 16 at the fifth annual World Respected
Childbirth Week conference in Prague, Czech Republic, followed by a screening in London and presentations by the filmmaker in Paris and Glasgow. The film will be featured on ABC-TV’s “20/20” this spring.
Five years in the making, Orgasmic Birth challenges cultural myths by revealing the emotional, spiritual, and physical heights attainable through birth. Viewers witness the passion of birth as 11 women have their babies in unhurried,
nonmedicalized settings—including hospital birth centers—where they feel supported and safe. According to birthing experts who provide commentary in the film, a pleasurable birth that is allowed to take its time is an integral part of
women’s sexuality and a neglected human right.
... screening dates and venues will be posted at the site.
