Birth Time: the documentary Screening

12 October 2023 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Association of Radical Midwives is proud to present a screening of Birth Time: the documentary. This multiple award winning documentary chronicles the journey of Zoe Naylor, Jerusha Sutton and Jo Hunter in their quest to answer why an increasing number of women are emerging from their births physically and emotionally traumatised.

In the words of the filmmakers:

“It was clear from the research we conducted that our maternity system is broken.

We have a postnatal depression epidemic, with suicide being the leading cause of maternal death in the developed world.

Birth trauma is rampant.

We have incredibly high intervention rates in birth, yet research shows that this is not leading to better outcomes for mothers and babies.

Globally, we are losing connection and trust in one of the most transformative, powerful, primal and pivotal rites of passage we will ever undertake in our lives.

We live in a time where it has become normal to disregard the importance of a woman’s experience of birth. It is not widely known that our birth and birthing experiences deeply impact the way we navigate the world.

Improving women’s/peoples experience of birth helps them set up a stronger bond with their babies, decreases their risk of postnatal depression and encourages them to trust their maternal instincts when it comes to mothering their children. Care, connection, respect and trust begin with the mother baby bond.

If all women could choose to work in partnership with one midwife who provided them with continuity of care throughout their entire pregnancy, birth and postnatal period, more could emerge from their births physically well and emotionally safe.”

Come and join us in watching and talking about this timely documentary and being part of positively changing the culture around birth.

    I would love to see this documentary but cannot be in London on that day or time. Can we watch it in any other way?
