San Francisco Chronicle
Whatever the film's faults, though, it's safe to say that you may never view childbirth in the same way. Full Review
Jeannette Catsoulis
The New York Times
A granola ode to natural childbirth that makes you want to hop into a tub of warm water and start pushing. Full Review
John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
The effective documentary makes her attitudes and techniques look unarguably commonsensical, for the most part; while many distributors will shy away from such graphic material, the film may thrive in niche bookings and will benefit from enthusiastic word-of-mouth on video. Full Review
Justin Chang
Warm, spirited and occasionally slathered in goo, Birth Story is a celebratory tribute to the endangered art of midwifery and its most influential practitioner, Ina May Gaskin. Full Review
Owen Gleiberman
Entertainment Weekly
Highlights Gaskin's down-home gumption as an advocate for the glory of natural childbirth. Full Review
