Homebirth in the US has increased by 20%. “At Home in Maine”, a new online film series about homebirth and midwifery care shows us why. The series features eleven films that present authentic intimate portraits of the homebirth experience and is produced by filmmaker Nicolle Littrell of Woman in the Moon Films. Several of the films also look at the politics around homebirth, including a campaign for licensure by Maine’s Certified Professional Midwives. The films can be viewed via rental or as a digital download at: www.mainehomebirth.wordpress.com
“At Home in Maine” is not just for Mainers–and not just about homebirth–but about normal, natural, woman-centered birth. The series is an excellent resource for women and their families to learn about this choice in childbirth–and makes a terrific addition to professional or academic lending libraries.
