Mother of Many - short film about midwifery.

I was reading Bloody Show this morning.  It's a relatively new blog that touches on midwifery and "intersections of health and race, class, sex, gender, sexuality and disability."

This particular find is part of an online short film contest, which still has a day or so left for viewers to participate in.  Last week, I talked about the end of life and here's a nice piece on the beginning.

Filmmakers looking for Doulas working with incarcerated pregnant women

I found this over at Radical Doula and think the request bears repeating.
We are Brooklyn, New York–based independent producers developing two film projects about doulas who have dedicated themselves to working with pregnant incarcerated people.  We are seeking to meet women who would like to share their stories and experience in order to raise awareness on the issues these people—both the doulas and the women they seek to serve and advocate for—face on a daily basis.  If you are a part of a group starting or maintaining a prison doula program in your state, we would very much like to hear from you.

We look forward to meeting you. Please contact: monipeterson@gmail.com.

Kindly, Laura Sweeney & Monique Peterson
