Event Details

The Ina May Gaskin Documentary Film Birth Story: Ina May Gaskin & The Farm Midwives is directed by Sara Lamm and Mary Wigmore. AUDIENCE AWARD WINNER at the 2012 at Los Angeles Film Festival. A feature-length documentary about Ina May Gaskin and The Farm Midwives. Ina May's books, "Spiritual Midwifery" and "Ina May's Guide to Childbirth" are at the center of the modern midwifery movement.

The feature-length documentary BIRTH STORY: Ina May Gaskin and The Farm Midwives tells the story of counterculture heroine Ina May Gaskin and her spirited friends, who began delivering each other’s babies in 1970, on a caravan of hippie school buses, headed to a patch of rural Tennessee land. With Ina May as their leader, the women taught themselves midwifery from the ground up, and, with their families, founded an entirely communal, agricultural society called The Farm.

Forty years ago Ina May led the charge away from isolated hospital birthing rooms, where husbands were not allowed and mandatory forceps deliveries were the norm. Today, as nearly one third of all US babies are born via C-section, she fights to preserve her community’s hard-won knowledge. With incredible access to the midwives’ archival video collection, the film not only captures the unique sisterhood at The Farm Clinic–from its heyday into the present–but shows childbirth the way most people have never seen it–unadorned, unabashed, and awe-inspiring. InaMay Gaskin, CPM, has been called "the most famous midwife in the world,” is the founder and director of The Farm Midwifery Center in Tennessee, and is the author of four books, including the wildly popular Spiritual Midwifery.
