Posted @withregram • @midwivesofmississauga Many of you may have heard of the new movie on Netflix, "Pieces of a Woman." This film portrays the grieving process of a set of parents after their child dies following a homebirth. We think pregnant people, in general, should be cautious watching this film, and others like it, while currently pregnant. But if you do watch it, or hear Tom Power interviewing about it on CBC Q, we wanted to share this blog post from the Association of Ontario Midwives in response.
We do not pretend to be film experts, but as experts in healthy, normal pregnancies with nearly 30y of evidence to back us up, we DO feel confident in saying this film does not accurately portray homebirth here in Ontario. Please feel free to discuss with your midwives further if you have any related questions or concerns. 💗
