BIRTH. HUMANE WAY

I filmed this documentary during the nine months of my pregnancy. That was difficult, a few times my baby could have died. This film is a social experiment that purpose is to show the situation in Ukrainian hospitals and maternity wards, I try to depict an attitude of doctors to pregnant women. Medical staff were often rude, irresponsible, they extorted money. I try to look for the answer why doctors are bad-behaved and most of Ukrainian female patients put up with this attitude?
