In choosing how they want to deliver their child, few women in Taiwan have options other than the standard procedures at hospitals: they push on you, they cut you, they’re quick to perform surgeries. There is a small network of women working to change this. This is a two-volume documentary about the 0.1% of women in Taiwan seeking alternative, gentler birthing methods, and the midwives and doulas helping them.
