FILM SCREENING: BIRTH STORY: INA MAY GASKIN AND THE FARM MIDWIVESBIRTH STORY: INA MAY GASKIN AND THE FARM MIDWIVES
Captures a spirited group of women who taught themselves how to deliver babies on a 1970s hippie commune, rescued modern midwifery from extinction, and changed the way a generation thought about childbirth. Today, as nearly 1/3 of all US babies are born via C-section, they labor on, fighting to preserve their knowledge and pushing, once again, for the rebirth of birth.
