Birth Story: Ina May Gaskin & The Farm Midwives


A Middle Tennessee woman remains at the forefront of a movement that encourages women to give birth with the aid of midwives.
Ina May Gaskin is a founding member of The Farm, a former commune in Summertown, about 90 miles from Nashville.
Over the past several decades, she and her team of midwives have delivered more than 3,000 babies at The Farm, a community started in the early 1970s.

In addition to delivering thousands of infants, Gaskin is a well-known author on midwifery and natural birthing. She is also the subject of a new documentary called “Birth Story” which is receiving critical acclaim following last month’s Los Angeles Film Festival.
