Seeking participants for docu-series on outdoor birth

SEEKING PREGNANT U.S. COUPLES THAT WOULD LIKE TO PARTICIPATE IN A DOCU-SERIES ABOUT UNASSISTED OR MIDWIFE-ASSISTED, OUTDOOR BIRTH. Late last year I was contacted by a company that was making a docu-series about outdoor birth for a major cable network. At first I was reluctant to get involved, but after watching clips from the first episode (which will air sometime next year) and speaking extensively with the producer – whose two children were born at home - I have decided to participate. I believe the producer has a genuine passion for homebirth and will present it in a positive light. His wife is currently studying to become a post-partum doula. In the episode I viewed, a couple in Alaska gave birth in a dwelling built by the father on the couple’s land. The birth was attended by the father, the mother’s sister and an unintrusive and unseen film crew. The family was very happy with the way they were portrayed and the birth brought tears to my eyes! I think this is a wonderful opportunity to help spread the word about the joys of homebirth! No first-time moms or California residents, and couples must be due between Sept. 1st and Nov. 30th.
