If you are in the Boston North Shore area, here is your chance to attend one of the world premiere screenings of the documentary MicroBirth. Birth Philosophy is hosting a showing of the film at the awesome Cinema Salem (voted best theatre on the North Shore!) in Salem, Massachusetts on September 20, 2014 at 10am.
How the human microbiome is formed and/or compromised is, without a doubt, a huge HOT TOPIC these days. Toni Harmon and her husband Alex Wakeford are the filmmakers at One World Birth are are exploring questions about how birth affects the microbiome seeding of a newborn baby. The way a child is born and whether or not they are breastfed or have skin to skin contact immediately with their mother all play significant roles in this highly complex process. A person’s immune system is either helped or hindered based on all of these factors. The documentary features a large number of experts from around the world who share some really fascinating information and opinions about an incredibly important topic for public health.
I invite you to come on over to the theatre to watch this extremely interesting film. More information and ticketing link here. And if you are not in the area check out the trailer and website to see if there is a screening near you!
