NATURAL BORN BABIES – Modern Day, Natural Childbirth
"A powerful argument for natural birth."
– Dr. Sarah Buckley
"Everything I´d want people to know about evidence-based care and choice in birth." – From the Birth Matters Virginia Judging Panel
WINNER OF AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF BIRTH CENTERS (AABC) MEDIA AWARD
A Modern Day Viewpoint of Natural Childbirth
Natural Born Babies presents a modern account of today´s natural childbirth. Told by 10 mothers, this program chronicles their journeys to challenge the conventional hospital birth model to give birth in their own way.
Resurgence interest in natural childbirth has led a record number of women to midwife-directed centers, where high-quality care combined with a nurturing environment is at the forefront of a movement. This movement seeks to dispel the inaccurate picture and practices of modern Western medicine. Gone are the days when midwifery was primitive and outdated. The modern midwife is presented in this film as she puts women and children first.
Lorri Walker, RNC, NP, CNM, one of Southern California´s best-known midwives, shares her insights and wisdom overcoming the medical model of birth. Birth professionals often overlook and disregard important subjects about birth. Hear an honest account of birth plans, Cesarean Sections, safety, unnecessary interventions and reluctant fathers as they are addressed – perfect for persuading any skeptic.
This program attempts to separate midwifery from a tarnished reputation and years of misinformation and negative publicity that has been propagated by the medical community.

Earth Voice, Food Choice is an educational program designed to teach educational institutions about healthier food choices for students and inspire teachers and students to eat more whole, organic plant foods and less chemically processed animal and junk foods. This is called a plant-based diet, a diet that is based mostly on eating plants (vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts and seeds).
“We want to ensure that the information students receive in the classroom is modeled in the polices & activities of their school. For nutrition, this means that available foods reflect healthy food choices. All members of the school team can work to create a healthy food environment whether the foods are available through school nutrition programs or school events.”
– Bill Honig, Superintendent of Public Instruction for the state of California
