Orgasmic Birth

I received this message through my doula network, and am quite excited to see this aired...

"Exciting news! On May 16, “20/20,” the acclaimed ABC-TV news show is dedicating it's show to Orgasmic Birth as part of its Mother’s Day program. Debra Pascali-Bonaro, producer/director of the new film Orgasmic Birth, will be interviewed, as will women’s health advocate Christiane Northrup, MD, ( Mother-Daughter Wisdom and Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom), and Amber Hartnell, whose orgasmic birth is featured on 'Birth As We Know It' and 'Orgasmic Birth.'

I first heard of orgasmic birth while reading "Spiritual Midwifery" by Ina May Gaskin. There were stories and pictures related to orgasmic birth that made me a pretty firm believer in the possibility. I also ran across a youtube video of a birth that is a pretty good visual representation of an orgasmic birth, but also how beautiful birth can be.

I have included the link to the video here. Please be warned that it is a graphic birth video (black and white, but no censorship). But if you are a birth junkie like me, brave, or just curious...I would check it out!

I agree that the sight reminds you how beautiful birth can be. I'm going to do more research because I'd love to know more about orgasmic childbirth. Thanks for sharing.
