8:00 pm Community Panel 

Amphitheatre, Saint Paul University, Ottawa


Five Countries, Six Births, Seven Babies depicts six beautiful and gentle births in five countries; France, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Bermuda and the USA. The film shows that while cultures, laws and languages may change, birth remains fundamentally the same – biological and sacred. The films speak for themselves through music and images. The director, Diana Paul, filmed the segments between 1994 to 2010. Each birth drives home a message to birthing women. Five Countries, Six Births, Seven Babies is a wonderful introduction to natural childbirth.
