Birth Days

Cyprus : Birth Days

A documentary about birth in times of excessive medical intervention. In a country where Caesarean section births account for 4 times the recommended WHO rate, one mother sets out to reclaim her own body and regain trust in the maternity care system. How do we give birth to our children and what are the reasons behind the increase in C-sections? Has labour become a "cascade of intervention"? What are women's rights at labour and how can a woman gain confidence in her own female nature?

By presenting audiovisual material from natural births, interviews with health care professionals and a series of real events, Birth Days opens new horizons in the approach of labour as a unique natural experience. Has medicalisation of childbirth gone too far?
