“Microbirth” examines how modern birth practices could be interfering with critical biological processes making our children more susceptible to disease later in life. For example recent studies have shown babies born by Caesarean have an increased risk of developing asthma, type 1 diabetes, obesity and other diseases linked to the immune system. Research also shows that the process of vaginal birth which involves a cocktail of hormones for mother and baby in labour, sets the foundation of our immune system such that by-passing natural birth can have adverse consequences.

Please note: The documentary will start as near to 10.15am as possible and lasts 65 minutes, followed by question and discussion time for about 30 minutes!
