"The freedom in a country can be measured by the freedom of birth" - Agnes Gereb

Please join us on Sept 20th when Freedom for Birth is release world-wide! Freedom for Birth is a special 60 minute campaigning documentary calling for changes to the obstetric  monopoly which, in many countries, is violating women's rights to choose where and how  they give birth.

This is a guided donation event - meaning that we ask that you consider 'purchasing' a ticket  for the event through sending a paypal donation to houstondoulacooperative@gmail.com and write "early show" in the item field. All funds will go toward helping make sure EVERY  woman who desires a doula can afford one. The suggested Donation is $5-$10.

The film tells the powerful story of Agnes Gereb, a Hungarian midwife imprisoned for  helping to give women choice in birth. It follows the story of a Hungarian mother, Anna  Ternovsky, who wanted a home birth with Agnes, took her country to the European Court of  Human Rights and won a landmark case which might have changed the world!

Also in the film are over 40 of the world's leading birth experts including: Ina May Gaskin,  Sheila Kitzinger, Sarah Buckley, Robbie Davis-Floyd and Michel Odent.

We will have a panel of birth professionals and activists available for talk back between each show to stimulate discussion, and we will have appetizers and light drinks available to  stimulate the palette. Please plan on staying afterward as well!

The Houston screening will be held in two showings on the same day, so be sure to RSVP to  your showing of choice.
