Oregon Midwifery Council, Eugene Region is please to present an advanced screening of "Birth Story: Ina May Gaskin and The Farm Midwives."

The event takes place at Cozmic Pizza on Charnelton and 8th in Eugene. This venue is family friendly but we ask that you use movie etiquette with children. Please be advised that this film contains some nudity in the context of birth. Parents please use your discretion.

This event is a fundraiser to support Oregon Midwifery Council.

Please plan to come early as there will be displays of local midwifery friendly businesses and organization.

About the film:
BIRTH STORY: INA MAY GASKIN AND THE FARM MIDWIVES tells the story of counterculture heroine Ina May Gaskin and her spirited friends, who began delivering each others babies in 1970, on a caravan of hippie school buses, headed to a patch of rural Tennessee land. With Ina May as their leader, the women taught themselves midwifery from the ground up, and became an integral part of a new, entirely communal, agricultural society called The Farm. The people of the Farm grew their own food, built their own houses, published their own books, and, as word of their social experiment spread, created a model of care for women and babies that changed a generations approach to childbirth. Forty years ago Ina May led the charge away from isolated hospital birthing rooms, where husbands were not allowed and mandatory forceps deliveries were the norm. Today, as nearly one third of all US babies are born via C-section, she fights to preserve her community's hard-won knowledge. With incredible access to the midwives’ archival video collection, the film not only captures the unique sisterhood at The Farm Clinic, from its heyday into the present, but shows childbirth the way most people have never seen it--unadorned, unabashed, and awe-inspiring.

Blessings!

I've been wanting to see this film, but didn't think my four year old would sit thru it. That's awesome that Cozmic hosted the screening. Maybe next time.
