birth story

i went to see A Birth Story: Ina May Gaskin & The Farm Midwives last night with a bunch of birthy folk here in Columbus. I just wanna put it out there how grateful I am to the women of CHOICE for making that screening possible. we are very lucky indeed. If you’re interested in learning about what these women did for the modern natural birth movement then i highly recommend the film. as a person who dreams of living communally, it really tugged at my wish strings.

i’ve included the trailer here. just as a fair warning, if you consider a woman’s exposed breast for nursing purposes not suitable for work, then this trailer is NSFW. if you consider a woman’s naked body during birth not suitable for work then this is probably NSFW. really, it’s got moments NSFW but maybe they shouldn’t be is what i’m saying.

also, little factoid, Robin Pecknold was the composer for the film so, yeah, there’s some of that indie music cred in there. Robby P, just when i thought I could not love you more.

if you’re lucky enough to live near one of these screenings go see it!
