i just watched this documentary, and i highly suggest it. i'm pretty sure it's solidified a desire in me to use a midwife our next time around; especially being confident that i can make it through a natural birth after having ruby. even though i didn't have medication with ruby, i think it would be a completely different experience to go through labor with more freedom than you're given in the traditional "always in bed" hospital setting. i made it to eight centimeters at home with ruby, so i'd like to think that i could go all the way through delivery either at home or in a birthing center. we'll see. either way, watch the movie.. it's a good one.
