Check out the sneak peek for I am a Midwife 2.0, a series of short videos all about midwives and what they do! Co-produced by the Midwives Alliance of North America and Woman in the Moon Films.
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.

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!

Six different midwives address the critical issue of health disparities in the US and describe how midwifery care improves birth outcomes for women and babies in vulnerable communities by providing safe, supportive and culturally sensitive care.
