The Documentary

Birthing At Home, in one phrase, is the agony and the ecstasy. Thirty two year old Alexis didn't want the hospital experience for giving birth. Instead she chose birthing in her parents' home without the aid of any drugs.

Alain, her Rwandan husband, assisted the midwife as Alexis' parents and the soon to be great-grandmother looked on.

After four hours of labor, ten and a half pound Jazmine Rose Rutayisire was born.

Birthing At Home is loving, very graphic and dramatic. (viewer advisory ... some scenes contain nudity and could be disturbing.)
