Vicki Elson, MA, CCE

If you’ve ever gritted your teeth or yelled at the screen while watching a birth on TV or in the movies, you’ll love this DVD.

In Laboring Under an Illusion, anthropologist Vicki Elson uses over 100 video clips to explore media-generated myths about childbirth. The resulting contrast of fiction with reality is hilarious, engaging and enlightening.

“To understand what it’s really like to have a baby, we have to debunk the silly and scary images served up by the profit-driven media. In reality, birth is hard work, sometimes simple, sometimes complicated, but always miraculous and unforgettable.”

Laboring Under an Illusion, is a thought-provoking tour of diverse attitudes and practices–a must-see video for anyone who cares about the reality of childbirth.

50 minutes, NTSC
