  2. Birth Story: Ina May Gaskin and the Farm Midwives

    Sara Lamm and Mary Wigmore / 95 mins
    BIRTH 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.
