  • Print
Description:

"All My Babies" is a documentary film made in 1953 about black midwives and the work they do, not just at the time of delivery but throughout the pregnancy to ensure the birth of a healthy baby. This film illustrates the important role of the African-American midwife, especially in the segregated South. This was one of the first films to explore the role of the African-American midwife and portrays a midwife in 1950s Georgia. After the film, moderator Martha-Marie Drohobyczer will lead a discussion on how womens' care can be improved in our community.
