  • This film blew my mind! All expectant mothers should watch to understand how labor healthcare really works. Jan 25, 2021

  • Essential for all pregnant women to watch! It is biased like all documentaries so do your own research after watching but so good!! Sep 03, 2020

  • This documentary really opened my eyes to how industrialized birth has become. It’s pretty scary to think about all the medications that you will be offered in a hospital. Jul 23, 2019

  • This doc has its biases like any other, but it also has some great information Oct 21, 2018

    Loved this documentary. Backed up my decision of having a midwife. May 11, 2017

  • I watched this right after having an emergency c-section, and it was really interesting. It's on Netflix, so I definitely think it's worth seeing. Mar 28, 2017

  • It was good to see. Sep 13, 2016

    A must-watch! Definitely encouraged me further in my desire for a natural birth. May 22, 2015
