A BREECH IN THE SYSTEM. A woman wants to give birth to her breech baby in a hospital. They say she has to have a caesarean section. This is an inspiring documentary about her to attempt to birth naturally against all odds.
Karin Ecker’s interest in social issues has brought her international credits for her filmmaking plus photographic art. From filming European children exploring environmental issues in the Bahamas to physically handicapped people scuba diving in the Egyptian Sea, she now brings her lens to the issue of childbirth choices in Australia.
She intends to use this film as a tool to support the voice of ‘woman’.
Prepare to be moved by this intelligent and poignant film about one woman’s birth journey with a breech pregnancy and breech birth. Experience the fear, anticipation, support and birth outcomes when you are clear about your boundaries and in touch with your inner voice in pregnancy. The role that care givers have in a woman’s birth is highlighted beautifully, ensuring this is must see film for all midwives, doulas and especially obstetricians.
This production is excellent making the film a joy to watch. I can best describe this film as a vital and stunning contribution for all humankind allowing us all to witness with absolute clarity the entry to our world of one human soul in a unique way.
