CAMDEN, MAINE. “At Home in Waldo, Maine” will screen at the Camden Public Library on Tuesday, October 11, from 6:30-8pm.
“At Home in Waldo, Maine” presents the homebirth experience of the Weavers–Melinda, Jerry, Ravi and Gideon–a family living in midcoast Maine. The film observes Melinda’s approaching delivery in context of the Weaver’s daily activities and documents the pre-natal planning and support the family receives from their professional midwives.
The Weavers are (semi) homesteaders, home/internet-based entrepreneurs, homeschoolers–and ro…ck and rollers (their band is Odlaw and their song, “Learn to Love” is featured in this film)!
This 46-minute film is both an intimate document of their experience and an exploration into the relationship between how we live and how we birth.
“At Home in Waldo, Maine” is one of the recent releases from “At Home in Maine”, an online film series about homebirth and midwifery care: www.mainehomebirth.wordpress.com The series is the creation of Belfast-based filmmaker Nicolle Littrell of Woman in the Moon Films.
Following the film, there will be a discussion with Nicolle, the Weavers and Morningstar Midwifery, the professional midwives who assisted the family. Refreshments will also be served.
The event is free and open to the public; however, donations will be accepted to support ongoing work on the “At Home in Maine” series.
