Microbirth Film Screening


JANUARY 21, 2015;  7-9pm
FAT CAT JOES - 9 Wall Street, Norwalk

FREE community screening, discussion and refreshments sponsored by Women of Wellness of CT

CTA new documentary “MICROBIRTH” looks at childbirth in a whole new way; through the lens of a microscope. Featuring Ivy League scientists, the film investigates the latest research that is starting to indicate modern birth practices could be interfering with critical biological processes. This could be making our children more susceptible to disease later in life.

In the film, scientists hypothesise that Caesarean Section could be interfering with “the seeding of the baby's microbiome”. This is an important microbiological process where bacteria is transferred from mother to baby in the birth canal. As a consequence, the baby's immune system may not develop to its full potential. Another hypothesis is that the stresses and hormones associated with natural birth could switch on or off certain genes related to the immune system and metabolism.

Discussion moderated by Beth Lambert, author of “A Compromised Generation” and director of Documenting Hope
