Cool.

C-section rates here are 25% I think. Still way too high.

Had mine in the hospital, only because the nearest hospital is considerably more than "15 minutes away". More like 2 hours away, unfortunately. Still, there were no tubes, no intervention, nobody offering drugs. Their policy is never to even mention an epidural, but it's there if you ask for it yourself.

No delivery room. Just a regular hospital bed, and all the rooms were private, so it was quite nice. Had the baby, got tidied up and fell asleep with him in the same bed.


Sorry, got carried away there, thinking about my babies!

I can't wait to see this film. Hopefully it'll be distributed up here. There's always Amazon.

The latest stats I can find on Canadian Caesarian rates are from 2003, which says 22.5%. The World Health Organization says the rate should be 10-15 percent.

I don't have a problem with hospitals, just with the harm that a lot of them cause babies and mothers. Your hospital sounds like a pregnant woman's dream. Hospitals in Scandinavia have great reps, too.

I'm woefully lacking in knowledge of childbirth in Canada. I should really get a copy of Giving Birth in Canada (which I just discovered five minutes ago), especially if I ever want to do any international travel nursing. I've always shied away from labour and delivery because I'd go home frustrated and angry after every shift, but if I could work in a hospital like yours, I'd be golden.

There's always Your American Friend Who Likes to Fileshare. *g*

I think it'll be available on DVD, though, because I'd imagine the producers want to reach as many people as possible.
