Freedom for Birth in Worthing

On Friday the 21st of September I was lucky enough to host one of 1000 worldwide screenings of the eye opening documentary Freedom for Birth by the film makers One World Birth supported by my friends from Worthing Pregnancy Pages.

We were joined by a group of local women who are also passionate about birth choices and positive experiences for women around the world.  The film was shocking, educational and moved most of us to tears at point as we learnt about how women in other countries particularly Hungary & America were having their right to choose their place of birth denied.

The plight of the amazing Midwive Agnes Gereb was highlighted as this incredible lady who has helped over 3000 women in Hungary to have their babies at home despite it being against the Law.

The underlying message was that Fear is so prevalent in the birthing industry it's becoming a hazard to everyone involved from doctors & midwives through to birthing couples whose birthing experiences are being seriously jeopardised.

As a HypnoBirthing practitioner this strikes a real cord with me as I witness time and time again the huge amount of anxiety and negativity that expectant couples are programmed with through modern day society.   I take huge pride in watching HypnoBirthing couples work through their limiting thoughts and love hearing about their positive labour & birthing stories once they have completed their birth preparation using the powerful tools that the HypnoBirthing programme equips them with.

The film highlighted Marie Mongan, the founder of HypnoBirthing discussing the Fear-Tension-Pain response and other birthing experts from around the world including Michel Odent and Sarah Buckley agreed that now is the time to respond and make change and improvements to the maternity services local to us as well as the global issues that the documentary so powerfully demonstrated.

Arranging the screening of the film was easy but now the hard work starts in making a difference and making a stand.  There is so much we can do to help make birth better for women around the world.  Please join in with the Freedom for Birth Campaign.
