Film Screening Across Michiana

A campaigning documentary featuring Ina May Gaskin, Sheila Kitzinger and other world birth experts calling for women to take back childbirth.

FREEDOM FOR BIRTH is a 50 minute (approx) campaigning documentary that spearheads a global movement. There will also be a shorter 20 minute version for internet release.
The film has a clear call to action and we believe, it has the potential to send shockwaves around the world. We believe this film could be the most important film about birth ever made because it explains why and exactly how women will take back childbirth.

This film is being shown in the following places across Michiana on Thursday September 20th, 2012
