The programme is too narrow and needs to fully represent active births

I'm signing because childbirth should be portrayed from all perspectives and not just from the overly dramatic way it has been just for viewing numbers. I'm a mum of four expecting my fifth

I totally agree. You are creating a deep set fear in women and causing unnecessary anxiety during pregnancy.

I'm signing because I'm an independent midwife and passionate to spread the word how birth can be a beautiful and empowering experience! (I've seen this first-hand in the clients that I look after)

I'm a qualified doula and I believe their should be a more balanced view of childbirth showing people more home births because we as mammals labour best in our own environment uniterrupted. Having experienced this kind of birth for myself, I feel passionate that every woman should know how fantastic birth can be, and not something to be feared as portrayed by the media and television.

I'm signing because I became very frightened babout childbirth from seeing repeated TV and movie representations. Also my mum didn't give me much reassurance. So I vowed I would never do su h a horrible thing.

I am 47 now and regret this decision....
Positive representations of childbirth are HIGHLY necessary...

I'm signing because instilling fear into people's minds is detrimental to women and their precious children. Women need to understand that giving birth can be an amazing experience, not a medical event.
