I had the joy of watching The Business of Being Born before I was pregnant....although looking back upon it - I may have been a few days along already. I cannot tell you how wonderful this documentary made me feel about my choice to approach birth in a natural way - BEFORE I watched. This just confirmed everything my intuition was telling me and I am so happy that it was a resource prior to pregnancy......I think I may have been a bit scared to watch it as pregnancy progressed. I think this is a film that should be incorporated into Sex Education programs. Too many women grow up scared of birth and think it is always an emergency. We need to talk to our teens and young adults before they make the CONCIOUS decision to bear children as well as teaching abstinance and responsible sex. We need to teach and preach the joys of womanhood and that pain in womanhood is not a punishment for pleasure.
