USC to show emotive birthing documentary


14 March 2012

14 March 2012

A moving documentary which advocates the right of women to choose where they give birth will screen at the University of the Sunshine Coast at 6.30pm tomorrow (Thursday 15 March).

The Face of Birth will present some heart-warming and heart-wrenching stories of home birth mothers, including actress Noni Hazlehurst, as well as interviews with pro-home birth obstetricians Euan Wallace and Andrew Bisits.

The public screening tomorrow at USC’s Lecture Theatre 7 will be part of the documentary’s highly publicised national launch. A second screening will be held on Saturday 24 March at 2.30pm in Lecture Theatre 3.

A panel of midwives will be available to answer questions following both of the screenings.

USC Master of Midwifery Program Leader Michelle Gray said the film’s key message was that women should be supported to give birth where they choose, whether that be at home or in a hospital environment.

For further information or to reserve seats contact Michelle Gray on 5456 5031 or or Leonie Williams on 5459 4549 or
