Laboring under an Illusion DVD is a documentary film that explores the media-generated myths about childbirth using clips from TV and film. These fictions are contrasted with reality using excerpts from childbirth films. These are made for use in natural birth classes. The results are hilarious, engaging and enlightening.
This film would be ideal for parents, students, even teenagers, all of whom are often influenced in their perceptions about birth from media-hyped depictions of birth as a dramatic, scary and dangerous event. An engaging expo!
