Movie with a Midwife-Why Not Home?
March 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Movie with a Midwife: a series of viewings of movies about birth with the midwives of M.A.M.A.S., Inc.
Join me (virtually through Zoom) to watch this provocative and entertaining exploration of the modern maternity care system through the lense of hospital care providers with a discussion of birth options afterwards.
From the Why Not Home? website:
“Why would doctors who attend birth in hospitals choose to have their own babies at home? What do they know about birth that others don’t?
Join Jessicca Moore, filmmaker and nurse practitioner, on a compelling journey through maternity care in the United States. Told through the lens of doctors, nurses, and midwives, Why Not Home? examines the latest evidence on risks and rewards of different birth settings. The film presents a balanced and accessible view on the latest research, along with moving personal stories of medical practitioners faced with big decisions for their own growing families. Viewers are challenged to move beyond preconceived ideas, and to envision a fresh future for maternity care in America.”
