I feel hopeful and inspired.  Every time I open Facebook, I get flooded with positive feelings, messages, photographs, or beautiful experiences that are going on right now, everywhere! Post after post after post are the most amazing beautiful people doing amazing beautiful things.  I feel blessed to be part of what's going on on this Planet Earth right now.  

My personal life also leaves me nothing more than counting my blessings. With my family expanding and healthy and loving; and with me ever expanding to new possibilities and new horizons. I feel truly blessed and I wish this for every single person on earth.  
- Elena Tonetti-Vladimirova, Creator of "Birth As We Know It" and Founder of Birth Into Being

A heartfelt invitation for you from our blog:

Help us ground the new birthing paradigm on Planet Earth by exposing yourself to the beautiful energy of ecstatic birth--all together, at the same time!  In sync with International Women's Day on March 8, people all across the world are hosting and attending film screenings of "Birth As We Know It." 

>>Learn more about the film

>>View world map of film screenings, including events in Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Washington and California.

>>Host a film screening 

>>Get your free Inspire! Film Screening Package with bonus content, including a never before released video of Elena holding a film screening. 

"If you are not hosting or attending a community screening, please watch the film yourself, even if it's just the 3 or 10 minute trailer.  If you have time, watch the full 74 minute documentary to help us saturate within the intention of bringing the new era and safe landing for the new people.  We are hosting a wave of screenings all over the world.  We're not setting up any specific time to accommodate your busy schedule. Together we can really anchor this energy into the mass mentality. Enjoy the video!" 

- Elena

 Read this excerpt from the New Zealand press release:

"Could the fact that 90% of births in the USA are traumatic affect humanity's ability to experience peace? Could Peace on Earth begin at Birth? Elena Tonetti, Director of the award winning film 'Birth As We Know It', says yes."

"I think it would be tremendously helpful to document what it is like to raise the children that are birthed without trauma. If parents knew how much more delightful it is and how much grief is avoided, they would go to the ends of the earth to avoid a traumatic birth." -George Denniston

If you have this kind of story, please write it up and send it to us (with permission to print) and we will forward it along.  He is collecting stories to edit and publish.  Dr. George Denniston, MD is an obstetrician/gynecologist in Seattle, Washington and long time friend of Elena Tonetti-Vladimirova.
