Down on the Farm: Conversations with Legendary Midwife Ina May Gaskin
Follow Executive Producer Ricki Lake & Director Abby Epstein to The Farm Community in Summertown, Tennessee, where pioneer midwife Ina May Gaskin talks candidly about the latest birth trends. Gaskin, who was featured in the original The Business of Being Born, sparked Lake's initial interest in home birth & has continued to inspire the filmaking duo's advocacy efforts.

Featuring celebrity moms Laila Ali, Michelle Alves, Gisele Bundchen, Sarah Wayne Callies, Cindy Crawford, Alyson Hannigan, Melissa Joan Hart, Kellie Martin, Alanis Morissette, Molly Ringwald, Christy Turlington-Burns & Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Special Deliveries provides collected stories from a group of fearless mothers. Their riveting testimonies speak to the power of the birth experience, whether they worked with midwives and/or obstetricians.
Tickets to this event are free, but must be reserved in advance to guarantee a seat.
This event was made possible by the generous donations of friends & supporters of birth choices for families in and around San Antonio. Donations are accepted with all proceeds being donated to San Antonio Birth Doulas, a local non-profit of doulas who volunteer their services to teen & low-income mothers.
Babies are most welcome to attend this event! Toddlers & older children who must attend so that their parents can attend are welcome as well, but please remember to take crying or noisy children out of the theater out of respect for the other viewers. Thanks!
