In every country on this planet, there is a WAR being fought to gain an asset more precious than gold or oil. The battlefield is a woman’s body when she is most vulnerable and in need of protection… when she is giving BIRTH. In this war we stand to loose our humanity. At this pivotal moment of life individuals develop either an intact or impaired capacity to love. Protecting our capacity to love is essential to saving our planet. The over-use of technology during birth has disempowered women, harmed the bonding process between mother and child, sabotaging breast-feeding and our essential human right to peace. At the heart of this war, perpetuated by the agendas of big business and by our misunderstanding of the physiology of birth, we find the guardian of natural childbirth – the midwife.
Along the fragrant streets of Bali and desolate Acehnese refugee camps of the Indonesian Archipelago, Guerrilla Midwife Ibu Robin Lim finds herself in the ring of fire, where the midwifery model of care is put to the test, at the epicenter of the turmoil following the December 2004 Tsunami. In this culturally mesmerizing, heart-wrenching documentary, you will discover why we must reinvent our protocols for pregnancy and childbirth. This is the burden and the gift of the Guerrilla Midwife.
“Healing the Earth, one baby at a time.” ~ Robin Lim
