The upcoming documentary film Birth Story: Ina May Gaskin and The Farm Midwives, will be a fascinating look at the role of midwives in the US maternal health system. The film is directed by Sara Lamm and Mary Wigmore, who decided to make the movie after their own experiences with childbirth. Ina May Gaskin has delivered more than 1000 babies during her 40 year career, and her birthing practices are now studied at major medical schools. More info about this documentary can be found on their Facebook page, and in a featured article in the July issue of Whole Living Magazine.
