Unassisted childbirth documentary on Discovery Health

October 21, 2008, the unassisted childbirth documentary “Freebirthing” will be premiering on the Discovery Health Channel. The hour-long program follows three women over the course of their pregnancies as they prepare to “freebirth” (give birth at home without the assistance of doctors or midwives). Dramatic footage of the extraordinary deliveries is also shown, along with comments from people that approve of or oppose the practice.

While this is not brought out in the program, nine pregnant women were actually interviewed for the documentary, and all nine went on to successfully give birth at home unassisted. None of the women sought medical care during the births, and only two sought non-emergency care after the births – one for a slow placenta (that came out easily, on its own in the hospital), and another for stitches.
