Tomorrow don’t miss the Celebrate Midwives! Film Festival.

This fundraiser, hosted by the Illinois Coalition of Certified Professional Midwives, is just in time for the International Day of the Midwife! Three films will be shown; all about midwifery and midwives.

Following the films there will be a panel discussion in which I will be a part of. Yay! Ain’t nothing better than talking about birth (well maybe for me, breastfeeding;)).

Check out the trailers for the films below and hope to see you there!!

Bringin’ in da Spirit is a historic look at the Grand midwives of the south and addresses midwifery in the Black community.

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.
