WELCOME to our foreign participants hall!


The experience was so revolutionary for my life that I felt the urge to share with the world some information which I consider vital but insufficiently publicized by the media. 
An example: Brazil is number one in the world for traumatic and unnecessary cesareans. Moreover, it is among the countries that pay the lowest wages to birth care professionals.
This emotional film thus shows practices linked with a way to live a conscious motherhood, including active labor and what this represents in the formation of more conscious human beings.
A humane and respectful birth directly contributes to the level of awareness, emotional health and safety of the baby and mother for the rest of their lives. Therefore, it improves the whole planet and the future of humanity.

Synopsis of the film: 

It is a documentary that portrays the activities of a group of midwives who dedicate their lives to support pregnant women in giving birth to their children in a warm and respectful environment.
Active in Florianópolis (State of Santa Catarina, Brazil) since 2005, those urban midwives form a team that mainly does planned home births, with a deep philosophy of humanization in pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum as a new paradigm for a more humane world, based on the concept created by famous French obstetrician Michel Odent, who says: “in order to change the world, we must first change the way of giving birth”.
