great mom movie

watched this documentary last night: "The Business of Being Born" Highly recommended for any pregnant lady or interested companion of said-lady. Informative on the industry of hospital birth and midwifery, but did not strike me as preachy. Very empowering and inspiring for women's ability to give birth naturally. I plan to go to a hospital with a midwife. This movie made me think home birth was viable option also. Being so close to my due date, made for lots of happy tears as each birth story unfolded.

great movie. I saw it after Oona was born though. The midwife in the movie (I forgot her name) delivered my friend's baby 11 yrs ago.
Good luck with the birth. I hope it goes exactly as you want it to.
