Freedom for Birth - The Mother's Revolution publicity poster

  • "Freedom for Birth" is more than just a film. It marks the beginning of a movement that will focus global attention on the violations of women's rights during childbirth all around the world.
  • All women should have the right, protected by law, to decide where and how they give birth.
  • The problem is that the rise of a dominant obstetric "machine" is robbing women of this right.
  • The result is that many women are being subjected to medical interventions and C-sections they neither want or need.
  • Tragically, midwives, the very guardians of normal birth, are being persecuted and criminally prosecuted to the extent that some have even been imprisoned.
  • "Freedom for Birth" will highlight the human rights abuses happening right now in North America, Europe, Australia and beyond.
  • And, the film will offer up a solution that can help protect womens' rights. 
Project World Peace was one of over one thousand organisations and people premiering 'Freedom for Birth' worldwide in 51 countries in 17 languages. Trailers are available here (3m12s) and here (10m17s) and are embedded below.
