hugely inspiring film 'Birth As We Know It' – we fell in love with her work, vision and message right there...this is without doubt one of the most inspiring and moving documentaries I have EVER seen...AAAAAAND Elena has now very generously offered a copy of the Educational Edition of her DVD to one very fortunate winner, for this month's RawReform giveaway - read on for details below :) (The winner of last month's contest to win Sarma's new raw recipe book will be announced soooon ;)
