What are 'birthgasms'? Expert explains the science and misconceptions behind this 'neglected human right'

Orgasms during childbirth. Did you know that you can experience orgasms in the labour room? It's a human right.
Director of award-winning documentary 'Orgasmic Birth', Debra Pascali-Bonaro is a childbirth educator and doula trainer who has made birthgasms and having a pleasurable birth an area of expertise.
Debra, who has appeared on numerous programmes and publications, acknowledges there are misconceptions about the terms, as well as mistrust - and even distaste.
"There is a huge divide in our minds between birth and sexuality," she explains, "and
our cultural beliefs dictate a preoccupation with pain and fear."
As part of Debra's campaign for a more positive approach to labour and body-image, she talks to Mirror Online about her mission, the misconceptions around orgasmic births and, above all, empowering women.
Do you relate to any of these?
