New Documentary on Hospital-Based Midwifery: The Mama Sherpas

by | Jul 24, 2015 | Midwifery Care

Inspired by her VBAC with a hospital-based midwife, the documentary filmmaker behind The Mama Sherpas states, “I am proud and privileged to have told the stories of the mamas and care providers in the film, and I hope the documentary will not only alter audiences’ stereotypes about midwives, but also normalize how we view the physiological process of birth.” Based on the trailer, which you can view on the website, it looks like a winner.
