A movie about respecting and protecting a woman’s right to choose how, where and with whom she gives birth
Every person has the right to be informed about birthing.

The Face of Birth is a film about pregnancy, childbirth & the power of choice. The most comprehensive film ever made on home-birthing and a voice of reason in the debate.

The Face of Birth is a compelling and thought provoking film that outlines the importance of education in birthing and the right of a woman to choose the best birth method for her and her baby.
