Birthing At Home

by Neil Lundy

Birthing At Home, in one phrase, is the agony and the ecstasy. Thirty two year old Alexis didn't want the hospital experience for giving birth. Instead she chose birthing in her parent’s home without the aid of any drugs. Her Rwandan husband, Alain, assisted the midwife as Alexis’ parents and the soon to be great-grandmother looked on. Giving birth at home can be risky business so the reassurance of a professional midwife is essential. After four hours of labor ten and a half pound Jazmine Rose Rutayisire was born. This 25-minute documentary is Interspersed with poignant interviews with Alexis, her husband Alain, Alexis’ parents, the soon to be great-grandmother and the midwife. Birthing At Home is loving, very graphic and dramatic.
