To celebrate the beginning of Home Birth week, Home Birth Canterbury is very pleased to be hosting a screening of Microbirth- Revealing the microscopic secrets of childbirth on Labour Day, Monday 27 October 2014 at 7:30pm (doors open at 7:15pm).
“Microbirth” is a new feature-length documentary looking at birth in a whole new way; through the lens of a microscope. Investigating the latest scientific research, the film reveals how we give birth impacts the lifelong health of our children and potentially could even affect the future of humanity.
Featuring prominent scientists from the UK and North America, “Microbirth” examines how modern birth practices could be interfering with critical biological processes potentially making our children more susceptible to disease later in life.
