“Guerrilla Midwife” Screening and Potluck

March 31, 2012 @ 6:00 pm 9:00 pm EDT

Guerrilla Midwife (Deja Bernhardt, 2010) depicts the courage of mothers and their midwives as they hold hands across barriers of language and culture, guiding us toward a reinvention of medical protocols. It is the story of a war waged gently in the belief that peace on earth can be achieved, one baby at a time. The feature will be preceded by a potluck and a short video by journalist Erin Colligan highlighting the work of local midwife K. Michelle Doyle.

A Q&A with local midwives will follow the screening.

Co-sponsored by Local Care Midwifery, Birthnet, and The Pregnancy Project.

We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
