Será que podemos considerar um parto natural quando estão máquinas fotográficas por perto?
Será que filmar um parto é uma intervenção?
Já me tinha questionado sobre isto quando li um livro do Michel Odent, e no curso Paramana Doula foi levantada esta questão...
Se pensarmos que o parto é sexo, pois as hormonas presentes durante o nascimento são as mesmas libertadas no orgasmo, será que nos comportamos da mesma maneira quando temos uma máquina fotográfica á frente?
Dá que pensar não dá?
E para levantar ainda mais celeuma, será que um parto dentro de agua é natural?
Tenham lenços por perto... eu chorei baba e ranho :)
Palavras da mãe:
This is the natural water birth of our son, Theo. I'm sharing it here because I wanted as many people as possible to see how beautiful birth can be. There is nothing more empowering than delivering your baby how you choose to and feeling fantastic afterwards.
It was filmed and edited by my talented sister, Hailey. She is a photographer and cinematographer. You can contact her about having your birth documented too (http://www.youcantbeserious.com.au/blog/ )
I don't think I own anything more precious than these 7 mins of film and if you're brave, I think having these moments on camera are priceless. I will treasure reliving this amazing moment in time forever.
About the birth: (or read his long birth story here http://gregariouspeach.com/?p=663)
Theo was born in the Royal Women's Birth Centre, Brisbane.
Zero interventions at 42+ weeks.
Caught by a midwife.
6 hr labour, 15 mins of pushing and one well baked baby (10lbs 7 oz).
I was supported by baby daddy, my lovely husband, Errol.
He is our second baby and I am 21.
I did Hypnobirthing classes with Helen Pywell of Brisbane Birthing. This helped to keep me calm relaxed throughout my labour. I highly recommend. http://www.brisbanebirthing.com.au/
