premiere screening of “at home in winthrop, me” at the frontier next wednesday, july 27th in brunswick!!

BRUNSWICK, MAINE.  It is the eve of solstice, June 2010.  Jenn and James Currier stand on a quite neighborhood street engaged in what appears to be a slow, swaying dance.  In fact, Jenn is having a contraction; labor is the rhythm she moves to. Later that evening, in the dining room of her home, she will give birth to her son Robbie in a birth tub supported by her husband, her mother, her doula and her professional midwives, Sarah Ackerly ND, CPM and Josie Skavdahl ND, CPM of Northern Sun Family Healthcare and Birth Center.

This story is presented in a new documentary film, “At Home in Winthrop, Maine” by Belfast, Maine–based filmmaker Nicolle Littrell and will have it’s premiere screening at the Frontier Café on Wednesday, July 27th from 6:30-8pm.

A discussion with Littrell, the Curriers, Ackerly and Skavdahl will follow the screening.  Admission is by suggested donation:  $5 for individuals and $10 for families.

The film is part of “At Home in Maine”, a documentary film series and educational resource about the choice to have a homebirth and receive professional midwifery care in Maine.  To learn more about At Home in Maine visit: www.mainehomebirth.wordpress.com 

The premiere of “At Home in Winthrop” is part of a weeklong celebration of events centered on the opening of a new birth center at Northern Sun Family Healthcare, one of two freestanding birth centers in Maine and staffed by CPMs.  For info about Northern Family Sun Healthcare visit:  www.northernsunfamilyhealthcare.com

At Home in Maine on Facebook

At Home in Maine now has it’s own Facebook Page!
It is my intention for the FB page to function in the following ways:

  • As another info/education source for all things Maine homebirthy–this would include events, classes, media, articles, political activity, etc.
  • A community space where folks can share their own homebirth stories–sharing a link to a video, writing your story, sharing birth art, photos, etc.
  • A shameless promotional tool for the At Home in Maine film project, given that FB is taking over the world.

Feel free to post liberally on the Facebook page!  And share the page!  More “likes” means more people will see this info–thanks!
