I am a Midwife is a new public education campaign by the Midwives Alliance of North America http://mana.org/
IAAM presents a series of short videos featuring a diverse selection of midwives, practicing in different settings across the US and Canada, serving a variety of communities and speaking about a range of topics.
IAAM is meant to change the discourse about childbirth in the US–from fear to empowerment! IAAM is for potential consumers of midwifery, aspirant midwives and those engaged in the public discussion about transforming our system of maternity care in the US, including, of course, midwives!
Filmed, edited and co-produced by Nicolle Littrell of Woman in the Moon Films http://www.youtube.com/user/womaninthemoonfilms
