To raise awareness of human rights in childbirth, we want to encourage screenings of Freedom for Birth.

We released the feature-length film on one single day in 2012, with over 1000 screenings in 50 countries.

The screenings created a wave of passion all around the world. And now we feel the time is right to do it all over again!

So, we have removed the need to buy a screening licence, and we have reduced the price of the DVD.
