Birth in the 21st Century


Barret Cooperativa / Lab RTVE / À Punt Mèdia

Birth in the 21st Century is an interactive documentary that follows the stories of five women during their pregnancy and childbirth, before and during the coronavirus pandemic. The experience invites the viewer inside the delivery room of the Hospital Universitario de La Plana, in Villarreal, Spain, where a team of midwives specialized in humanizing birth support women through childbirth in a way that is designed and developed with a deep respect for their bodies, their babies, and their rights. Participatory elements, such as an interactive birth plan, render Birth in the 21st Century an educational tool that offers vital insight into contemporary birth practices.
