Birth Story

 BIRTH STORY: Ina May Gaskin and The Farm Midwives is racing toward the finish line with finishing costs mounting--seeking women and men who share our enthusiasm for what Ina May and the Farm Midwifery clinic have achieved in the last 40 years; since the 1970s these counterculture heroines have inspired hundreds of thousands of women to believe in their bodies’ natural ability to birth safely and beautifully. Today, with nearly one-third of all U.S. babies delivered via c-section, their knowledge and skills are more needed than ever.

This amazing film project has been put together by two women who describe themselves as "two filmmaking mothers who have been inspired by the important work of world-famous midwife Ina May Gaskin and her incredible colleagues. We've spent the last two and a half years juggling cameras, microphones, hard drives, preschool drop offs, nursing infants, pregnancy, editing schedules, babysitting schedules, American express bills, and vomiting four-year-olds"...
