Happy as a baby in water



Happy as a baby in water is the story of Benoit's non-violent birth. His first cry, his first bath, his first breastfeed.

Doctors, researchers and sociologists explain the foundations of their practice and the importance of these first moments.


One rediscovers motherhood, but this time ALSO from the babies' point of view. They speak to us: it is through their eyes, their hands, their movements that we can glimpse a life that is beginning ... differently ... differently well.
