American Naissance: Journey With A Friend

Flora Hommel (first seen at 3:00) promoted Childbirth Without Pain (the Lamaze psycho-prophylactic method of painless childbirth) with this film, co-produced in 1970 by filmmaker Wil Berg. Flora considered this film an American version of the well-respected French film Naissance.

Wil and his wife Edith are also the subjects of the film as they attend Lamaze classes in Cleveland. The film concludes with the birth of their child.
