This film is so bereft of conflict and seems so intent on celebrating commune life and the sisterhood and the joys of midwifery that it glosses over important issues.

Challengingly graphic but good-natured doc is an eye-opener on midwivery.

A granola ode to natural childbirth that makes you want to hop into a tub of warm water and start pushing.
