Description

Home birth? Hospital? Midwife? Doula? Childbirth presents parents with a number of choices – or at least it should. In this short film, BIRTH OPTIONS: Empowering Women Through Choice by Beth Hondl, parents share their birth stories and reflect on the importance of choice when preparing for childbirth.

  1. 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.
