About the film
3 years in the making, filmed across the globe from London to Alice Springs, The Face Of Birth is a moving documentary with vital information for anyone considering giving birth in Australia today.

Scientific evidence shows that how we are born has a huge impact on our health and happiness - as babies, children and, for some of us - for the rest of our lives.

Home birth mothers believe that they are making the best and safest choice for themselves and their babies. Main****** medicine in Australia, unlike the UK, thinks otherwise.

This is a film about families that choose to give birth at home, the midwives and health professionals who support them and a system that works against them.

Beautifully shot and openly revealing, The Face Of Birth tells about all the things we never knew about birth and the power of choice.

Screening details below. If you can't get along to a screening get a friend to purchase the full DVD set for you, 3 x DVD set including Face. of Birth, Meet the Experts and Birth Stories available at a special price of $60 (usually $75) at all screening venues.
