Sexual Assault, Women’s Reproductive Health, Women’s Economic Security. Three serious issues in our culture. Three issues that are related.

Pinkout: Belfast, Maine!

This short video is the latest release from Woman in the Moon Films.  It presents excerpts/interviews from the rally that happened in Belfast, ME on Sept. 29, part of a national campaign occurring that day to Stand with Planned Parenthood, in response to recent egregious attacks on Planned Parenthood leveled by the Republican Party, including slanderous videos, defunding of PP in multiple states, witch trial-like federal hearings and raids in Texas PP clinics.  Not to mention aggressive legislation in several states limiting access to women’s choice to abortion.  Keep standing with Planned Parenthood!

I am a Midwife Because…Part II

I am a Midwife Because…Part II is the follow-up to the video of the same name released last week, featuring 7 different midwives! Learn how the experiences of being a research student, a Peace Corp volunteer, a New York City police officer, and a 7-year old child led seven American midwives into the profession of midwifery. The midwives featured in Part II represent a spectrum of educational backgrounds and provide services to women in their families in a variety of settings including clinics, homes, hospitals and birth centers. Here is a glimpse of their amazing and inspiring stories!

Part II marks the last I am a Midwife video we’ll release this season. More coming in September! Until then, please share this series with anyone you feel could benefit from learning more about midwives and the safe, supportive and satisfying care they provide.  Be sure to subscribe to I am a Midwife on Youtube!

I am a Midwife Because…Part 1

Why do women (and yes, some men) become midwives? In the latest video from the new series, I am a Midwife, eight midwives with diverse backgrounds and practicing in different settings in the US and Canada–home, hospital and birth centers–share their stories of what led them to midwifery. For some, it started with their own birth; for others it was a deeply felt “calling,” a way to be part of the “solution” of improving birth outcomes and experiences for women and their babies. Inspiring, moving and at times hilarious, I am a Midwife Because…provides an inside look at what moves women to do the important work of being a midwife. Part 1 of 2. Part 2 coming next week!
