Atlanta, GA – SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Health Collective, Decatur Doulas Childbirth Services, and Afeia host the Atlanta premiere of “Orgasmic Birth,” at the Landmark Midtown Cinema, TODAY, Thursday, September 25, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. “Orgasmic Birth,” a documentary film by internationally respected childbirth educator, doula, and birth activist Debra Pascali-Bonaro, is blasting a vital question around the world: What would happen if women were taught to enjoy birth rather than endure it?
Of course I called to speak to them. Heidi Williamsonn, the press contact:
"Some people do get turned off by the title. ... In essence, what many women feel the medicalization of pregnancy does is make for fear. ... We're not saying that there's no pain. No one is saying that there's no pain. But what happens is that.... sort of a woman-centered culture is brought to pregnancy... the anxiety is taken away and women are encouraged to trust their own bodies."
