The amazing documentary by Rhonda Haynes, Bringin in da Spirit, will be shown Februrary 17, 2012 during the Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA) Region 5 Conference. Through the use of first person narrative and rare archival images, this documentary provides a moving glimpse of the Black women who have skillfully brought scores of children across the threshold of existence as midwives in America. Narrated by Phylicia Rashad, this evocative and passionate film celebrates women who have committed themselves to holistic answers amidst powerful misconceptions about the practice of midwifery and virulent opposition from practitioners of Western medicine.
