Zebra Midwives release video about fathers who attend births

Bulgarian collective Zebra Midwives have produced a video about the experience of fathers attending the birth of their children.

Yoana Stancheva, part of the collective said: “We have released a 6-minute video about 18 fathers who attended the births of their children. It is about what they saw at the birth and how they felt attending. Please, take a moment to see it, as the dads in the video are very sweet and loving.

“We started a beautiful campaign in Bulgaria because the video is very positive and 6300 people saw it in only two days. It is still quite rare for dads to attend because birth is not considered part of their responsibilities and we have too many stereotypes surrounding what’s a ‘man’s job’.”

NOTE: The video has English subtitles, you only have to turn them on.
