Brave New Womb - Reducing Infant Mortality & Improving the Health of Babies

Volume 54
In certain emergency circumstances where medical intervention is necessary, technology can be very useful, but in the case of normal healthy birth, intervention can lead to a host of lasting problems for the child. It is with this in mind that our films for the month explore options for natural childbirth.

It was long thought that newborn babies did not feel physical or emotional discomfort. We now know that babies not only feel and experience pain and emotions, but that what happens to them from the moment of conception through the first three years of life, particularly at the time of birth, makes an impression on them that will last their whole life. Though technological advances have made childbirth more efficient, they have not necessarily made it safer.
