The Midwives Alliance of North America is developing a new public education campaign, I am a Midwife, produced by filmmaker Nicolle Littrell of Woman in the Moon Films, MANA’s president and interim executive director Geradine Simkins, CNM, DEM, MSN and Tamara Taitt, DEM. The online film series is launching on the International Day of the Midwife, May 5th, and will focus on midwives and what they do. Through diverse faces, stories and information shared by “everyday” midwives, the series aims to help educate the public about the benefits of midwifery care, increase access to services and promote the profession of midwifery.
