Birth Story: Ina May Gaskin & The Farm Midwives

Have you heard about this new documentary, which premiers on Saturday at the Los Angeles film festival? While I’d love to visit Ina May Gaskin’s inspirational farm, I’ll settle for watching this movie in the meantime. If you’re similarly inspired, you can add your support to the filmmakers here.

“Remember this, for it is as true and true gets: Your body is not a lemon. You are not a machine. The Creator is not a careless mechanic. Human female bodies have the same potential to give birth well as aardvarks, lions, rhinoceri, elephants, moose, and water buffalo. Even if it has not been your habit throughout your life so far, I recommend that you learn to think positively about your body.”
― Ina May Gaskin, Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth
