DON’T YOU JUST LOVE IT WHEN A PLAN COMES TOGETHER?

When we first started telling friends about our plans for a worldwide birth project over a year ago,we got the impression that some of them thought we were just a little bit crazy! How on earth were we going to pull off a project of such epic proportions without huge corporate sponsorship? Was there really a global community with enough passion for birth that was going to embrace One World Birth and actually get involved?

Well, the answer is a huge, resounding YES!

We’ve had hundreds of messages of support and encouragement. (By now I hope we’ve managed to reply to all of them!) We’ve received loads of suggestions as to whom and what we should film next, specific topics for future editions and offers of help.

What this means is that we are, in effect, green lit and now we are just three weeks away from boarding the first flight of our global adventure!

FIRST UP
Here’s a provisional filming schedule for our November trip to Canada and Eastern USA.

  • Toronto                    7th November
  • Niagara Falls, ON    8th-11th
  • Toronto, ON             12th-13th
  • Hackettstown, NJ    14th-15th
  • Richmond, VA         16th-18th
  • Raleigh, NC             19th-20th
  • The Farm, TN          21st-22nd
  • Atlanta, GA              23rd
  • Florida                     24th-26th

Where are NYC and D.C. and all the other important centres you may ask. Our schedule is so tight this time round, but we will be coming back because we want to spend a sensible amount of time in these places.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
Doula DVD ChallengeThe results of our 7 Day Doula! DVD Challenge are in!
Thanks to your marvellous response to our plea for help we have been able to turn DVD sales into:

          • Airline seats
          • Car hire
          • Hotel for the conference in Niagara Falls

In fact, the response has been so positive we’ve had to order in new stock. You can still get your copy here.

AND WHAT’S MORE…
We have been touched by the dozens of offers of hospitality while we are travelling. We now have places to stay in Toronto, New Jersey, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee and Florida!

We can’t wait to meet our host families and look forward to some good banter around the kitchen table!

WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
Our friends on the ground are also setting up evening screenings so that we can show brand new OWB footage as well as the Doula! film.

Thank you all so much for your support.

But we still need to raise a further $5000 to cover equipment hire, gas, phone and internet and sustenance. We’ll continue to do this through Doula! sales up until the day we leave. Click here for more info.

WHERE IN THE WORLD NEXT?
In January we’ll be heading off to the other side of the world to Australia and New Zealand. We also hope to get to Japan where we are lining up an amazing set of interviews.

In spring we will be returning to the US and Canada when we will be gathering interviews and footage from the west coast and central USA. California to Vancouver, Texas to Nebraska and beyond!

Summer will be a return to mainland Europe.

And that’s just the start! We still need to cover Brazil, Africa, India, the Middle East and China. And so much more!

Thank you again and we hope to meet you in person at some stage on our travels!

Alex and Toni
