LOTUS BIRTH: The Water Birth of the Malcolm Twins is a rare and extraordinary film that shows a family preparing for the birth of twins. The home footage records a natural birth. The babies are born into water, one breech, both keeping their placentas intact. This film restores birth to it's proper place in family life. A radical and controversial film, it is a welcome antidote to medicalised institutionalised birth.
"The Lotus Birth is a beautiful testament to the power of natural birth. The image of the Malcolm twins emerging from their mother's womb and being given time to unfold into the warm water that enveloped them is one that will inspire and delight parents and birth professionals alike."
