Birth Days

Birth Days

Directed by Danae Stylianou

Following its successful world premiere at the Lemesos International Documentary Festival last August, the new documentary feature film, Birth Days, produced and directed by Danae Stylianou, is screening again for the public at the Rialto Theatre, on Wednesday, October 31st, at 20:30. Three more screenings will follow in Nicosia and Larnaca.

A documentary about birth in times of excessive medical intervention. In a country where Caesarean section births account for 4 times the recommended WHO rate, one mother sets out to reclaim her own body and regain trust in the maternity care system. Has medicalisation of childbirth gone too far?

How do we give birth to our children and what are the reasons behind the increase in C-sections? Has labour become a "cascade of intervention"? What are women's rights at labour and how can a woman gain confidence in her own female nature?

By presenting audiovisual material from natural births, interviews with health care professionals and a series of real events, Birth Days opens new horizons in the approach of labour as a unique natural experience.
