The Loft Cinema Presents Birth Happens: An International Look at Birth

Posted By on Wed, Mar 9, 2016 at 3:07 PM


Pregnancy and babies bring about thoughts of growing families, tiny socks, first steps—and safe deliveries. Sometimes, that's just not how birth happens. 

This Thursday, March 10 at 5:30 p.m., the Loft Cinema (3233 E. Speedway Blvd.) presents Birth Happens: An International Look at Birth, an event that looks at birth on a global level. 

Tickets are $12 for general admission, $10 for Loft members. 

The Loft's description of the event: 
Every day, 364,501 children are born worldwide. That is 5 children per second and 300 per minute. All children are born with their own life story, their own family, their own environment, their own culture, and their own place in the world with their own future.

“The way in which a child comes into the world is a mirror of its society and the place where our cradle is determines our future.” – Birth Day filmmaker Lieve Blanquaert

Birth Happens is a one-time only event that brings together three films, which gives a glimpse into births around the world and what women are facing giving birth in various countries. “No Woman, No Cry” a film by Christy Turlington Burns, “Birth Day” a film by Lieve Blanquaert and “Giving Birth in America- New York” a film by Every Woman Counts showcase the challenges, complexities and conditions that women and families cope with when having a baby.

An informed discussion will take place after the films with international and public health experts to learn about their experiences and what is happening locally. Come join us and be a part of the discussion. Raffle and ManDonna, a black and white photo exhibit of dads and babies also presented this evening.
The event is presented by the Friends of  Midwifery and Sponsored by El Rio Community Health Services-Women's Services.
