Orgasmic birth on "The Doctors" (CBS TV) 1/26/09
Last week I took a quick trip to Hollywood where I spoke ever so briefly about orgasmic birth on The Doctors (CBS TV). The show airs this Monday (Jan. 26th). Because it's syndicated, in some areas it airs on other networks. For local listings click here.
While most of the recent press I've done has been about unassisted childbirth, orgasmic birth is actually a subject I've long been passionate about. I first wrote about it in my 1994 book, Unassisted Childbirth and newsletter "Letters From Home." My article Orgasmic Childbirth has been on my web site since 2000, along with several other articles about the sexual nature of birth. In 2002, The Mother Magazine (UK) published my article Orgasmic Childbirth! What's the Secret? and in 2005, I was interviewed about it by the London Times. I also spoke about it in 1999 in the unassisted childbirth documentary A Clear Road to Birth and have done several radio shows about it over the years. Most recently, I was interviewed about it by the Huffington Post.
My interview for this show was quite short - I believe they asked me 3 or 4 questions. They may also be showing a short clip from my first homebirth. Of course, I would have loved to have shared more of my thoughts on the subject. But for the most part, I felt good about the interview and thought the doctors were fairly receptive to what I had to say. All in all, it was a fun trip!
