The film was made by a childbirth educator and doula named Debra Pascali-Bonaro and her premise is: What if women were taught to enjoy the birth experience instead of just trying to get through it?
Enjoy it indeed. Pascali-Bonaro claims the "best kept secret" of childbirth is that some women -- get this -- have an orgasm as the baby leaves the woman's body. She's not saying it happens or should happen with every birth -- merely that it's possible, as women in the film report. An OB/GYN in the documentary notes that the huge hormonal surge a woman experiences during birth could contribute to the feelings of ecstasy.
You can catch the doc on Friday, January 2, when it makes its primetime debut on "20/20."
What do you think? Orgasms during childbirth -- anything is possible or puh-lease?
