Birthing Peace ~ DVD
Birthing Peace (32 mins) shows two births. Simone’s Birth video (high-resolution, 14 min): The first birth (of Simone) is attended by a few midwife friends along with my husband and mother. We see the progress from a dilation check of two centimeters to my wacky move-the-baby down-dance, some praying and kissing and the baby surfacing beautifully. The mood is relaxed and joyous.
Pema’s Birth video (high-resolution, 13 min): The second birth (of Pema) is an unassisted birth. We waited for Simone (then 4-years-old) to arrive with friends while the baby begins to descend. She arrives just in time to watch her sister be born. We watch Simone’s excitement and surprise as she first meets her new sister. Simone adds much humor to the event. Along with baby Pema’s arrival, we see the delivery of the placenta and the first nursing.
Birth Commentaries: There is the option to view each birth with my commentary, including what was going on in my head, midwifery tips and some suggested childbirth preparations.
Video Chat: I’ve also included a 5 min video where I describe my birth philosophy and practices in more detail…….

When someone asks me what my ideal birth looks like, I show them this DVD! I’ve watched Birthing Peace again and again, and it still fills me with joy every time I watch it! What a gift Monique Gauthier has given to women. If this is the future of birth – and I certainly hope it is – we have much to look forward to!
