You’ll enjoy this new and expanded version of Birth Day, which includes the original eleven-minute documentary as well as ten additional chapters. Taped by the baby’s grandfather, Georges Vinaver, and narrated by the baby’s mother, midwife Naolí Vinaver Lopez, the heart of this inspiring DVD is the birth of the family’s third child and first daughter, Tamaya Okumura Vinaver. The birth takes place at home with Naolí’s husband and two children in Xalapa, Mexico. The result is a touching and intimate account of natural birth, waterbirth and close family dynamics.
The new material includes additional footage of Tamaya’s birth, moments of family bonding and interviews with the grandparents, the midwife and others. In the chapter “Besos” (kisses), you’ll witness the entire family in the birthing pool bonding with the new baby. In “La Placenta,” you’ll see the birth of the placenta and then watch as the family makes an artistic placenta print, a memento of the arrival of its newest member.
Beautiful and inspiring, Birth Day gives insight into what is needed for birth to be beautiful, safe and natural. It will help parents and practitioners alike understand the true and sacred meaning of birth.
