ABOUT FEAR AND NOW

Currently in production, Fear and Now is a documentary feature film that challenges the fear-based birth culture and birth injustices in the United States while exploring solutions offered by the practice of HypnoBirthing, the best-kept secret

in the birthing world.

 

Developed as a direct result of director Liat Ron’s life-changing experience of birthing her second child, Fear and Now aims to open mainstream's eyes to HypnoBirthing education and its power to improve birth and birth outcomes for all. This birth preparation method, which puts the birthing person in control and in charge of their birthing process, leads people to having safe, gentle, enjoyable and very possibly pain-free births by using practical techniques to eliminate the fear-tension-pain cycle. The practice of HypnoBirthing has been proven to profoundly benefit ALL types of birth, including surgical births.

 

Fear and Now is the FIRST film dedicated to highlighting the impact of HypnoBirthing, the most misconceived birth preparation method, on pregnancy, childbirth and beyond.

The film also follows the progress and realization of a collaborative initiative with the HypnoBirthing Institute aimed at turning HypnoBirthing into an inclusive and accessible birthing option for all, as well as addressing medical racial bias and systemic racism in order to improve black people’s birth experience and outcomes.
