The Other Side of the Glass -- the trailer

The YouTube version of the fund raiser trailer is finished!! It is a very full ten minutes.

The other side of the glass

SO MUCH is in that ten minutes and so much yet to say! I actually am doing an 18 minute trailer that will be more inclusive, and will even be a stand-alone to just get the basic premises out there -- babies are conscious, fathers are also disempowered, it's not about where or with you give birth, but that they know that the baby is feeling and remembering the experience, so fathers must be re-trained to be protectors in the hospital.

It will be the first 18 minutes of the full film .... which will have the interviews of a wider spectrum of professionals and fathers, and will include a third birth, at home, where the caregivers do a necessary intervention, suctioning, while being conscious of the baby.

The 18 minute video is going to be available soon for a minimum donation of $15.

It is designed for women and men to present to their caregiver -- midwife, nurse, or doctor; and for childbirth educators, midwives and doctors to show to expectant men and women. It will provide the basic information men and women need to have to make birth safer -- wherever they give birth.

This final version will include the science needed to advocated for delayed cord clamping, and the science that shows when a baby needs to be suctioned and addresses other interventions. Experts in conscious parenting will teach how to be present with a sentient newborn in a conscious, gentle way -- especially when administering life-saving techniques.

The goal is to keep the baby in the mother's arms so that the baby gets all of his or her placental blood and to avoid unnecessary, violating, and abusive touch and interactions. When we do that, whether at home or hospital, with doctor or midwife, the birth is safe for the father. The "trick" for birthing men and women is how to make it happen in the hospital.

With the information in the film, a father can defend this critical need of his baby's without any doubts.

Finally, and very importantly, most of us were born surrounded by people who had no clue about how aware and feeling we were. This trailer triggers a lot of emotions for people if they have not considered the baby's needs and were not considered as a baby. The final film will include detailed and profound information about the science-based, cutting-edge therapies for healing birth trauma.
