From the creators of the film:
“The prevalent belief in modern society is that women cannot give birth on their own; that they are not mentally, psychologically, or physically strong enough. The time has come to deconstruct this story.
These Are My Hours is a raw display of female intensity. It shows birth as mother-centric and autonomous. Featuring poetic voiceover from the birthing mother, These Are My Hours is film’s first glimpse into the personal narrative of the heroine’s journey to give life.”
"I've seen so many childbirth videos throughout my career, but the passion and strength of this movie are so unique and unprecedented it may actually be powerful enough to improve our society's entire perception of birth.
Gail Hart, midwife
"Finally, a film that tells the story of labor, birth and beyond; it captures something essential and raw."
Caroline Paul, best-selling author of The Gutsy Girl
“Emily rocks this birth, and the filmmaker invites us to view the beauty and power of a woman birthing her own way."
Gail Tully, midwife and Spinning Babies creator
