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.”
The Kelowna Doula Association is hosting the first BC movie screening of the film THESE ARE MY HOURS. This film reveals one woman’s physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual transformation through giving birth. It is the first documentary filmed entirely during the course of one woman’s labour, told from her perspective.
The Kelowna Doula Association plans to use the proceeds from the silent auction, to be held alongside the event, to support a family (or families!) with birth or postpartum doula services through a partnership with Mamas for Mamas.
The Kelowna Doula Association aims to educate and empower child birthing families and doulas throughout the Okanagan. Birth and Postpartum Doulas provide support to families having babies, during birth and the postpartum period. One of the goals of the non-profit society is to promote birth as a safe and satisfying experience.
