Notes: 
Review, Network Winter/Spring 2005: There is a serious need for educational materials on reproductive health and this video helps fill that gap. It covers topics including puberty, menstruation, pregnancy and labour, birth control methods, and sexually transmitted diseases including HIV, and how to be tested for HIV. The film features deaf actresses in most roles and dialogue in American Sign Language throughout. It also has a spoken English voice-over and open captions (subtitles), so the film is accessible to hearing and hard-of-hearing people as well as sign language users.
