Show trailer
Women from widely different cultures speak out about giving birth, and about the traumas they have experienced when the birth does not go as expected.

The beginning of a new life can happen in many different ways. The director Maia Martiniak travels around the world to document how birthing cultures vary from country to country – and how traumatising it can be when a birth does not go as expected. Through intimate testimonies from women who have been through the harrowing experience of giving birth, and midwives who are experts on the matter, Martiniak paints a touching portrait of the pain that a negative birth experience can cause. And at the same time, she points at a possible new approach, which prioritises inflicting the least possible harm on the mothers.
