Launch of global birth film project – ONE WORLD BIRTH
So our first preview trailer for our One World Birth global birth film project has been live for just over a week.
In the trailer, we’ve got many of the world’s most important voices on birth including: Sheila Kitzinger, Ina May Gaskin, Dr Michel Odent, Elizabeth Davis, Debra Pascali-Bonaro (Orgasmic Birth), Beverley Beech (AIMS), Jan Tritten (Midwifery Today), Cathy Warwick (Royal College of Midwives) and more besides.

The response to the trailer has been amazing. Honestly, the response has taken my breath away. As I write this, we’ve had over 800 Facebook “likes” and over 230 comments posted on the One World Birth website – almost all of these responses have been incredibly passionate and supporting the “revolution!”
The actual One World Birth site will open its doors in a couple of weeks. To give you a little insight, One World Birth is an online “living documentary” / Internet TV channel that will expand to contain hundreds of hours of premium exclusive video content about birth issues filmed around the world. Think “Facebook meets Youtube” all about birth.
A key part of the project is to create a full-length feature-film documentary for worldwide release – which we hope will help propel birth issues into the mainstream, to get people talking, to get things changing!
Another fundamental part of this project is to build a global community of birth professionals and people who care passionately about changing birth practises – so that people can connect, inspire and together can help change the world! We’re nothing if not ambitious and hungry for change!
For the past week, we’ve been working hard on the second video trailer and now it’s just about ready. This tells the story of us the film-makers, about why we are doing this, about who and where we have filmed so far, how the project is going to work and our plans for the future.
So if you have signed in on the website (we promise not to share your email address with anybody else), an email with the link to this second video will be popping through your inbox in the next day or so. Please watch out for it and let me know what you think (it features me trying to “pitch” the project!)
Once the site is live, our plan is to release the trailers publicly – so if you see them on any social media sites (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, forums etc ) please LIKE or SHARE or use any other means to let other people know about it!
I would love to hear your thoughts and feedback about the whole project and thank you for so many kind words of support for myself and the rest of the ONE WORLD BIRTH team.
One other thing – we’ve also just launched a new ONE WORLD BIRTH Facebook Fan page – so come join us. http://www.facebook.com/oneworldbirth
I look forward to “connecting” with you on the site, or on the fanpage, twitter or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org soon.
