We invite you to join us as we celebrate International Midwives' Day at a screening of Why Not Home?, a thoughtful documentary about families who choose to birth at home. Surprisingly, these families are doctors and nurses.

The film's director and producer, Jessicca Moore, is a Family Nurse Practitioner. She describes herself as "not a particularly radical person," but was moved to choose homebirth "for its simplicity and its power." Her intention for this film is to "challenge our cultural assumptions about what birth is and what it can be." A discussion with Jessicca Moore follows the screening.

“Why Not Home captures the beauty of natural birth in a way that is so hard to articulate. It shows inspiring stories of how medical professionals can collaborate to make birth better, and how women can be empowered in the process. Medical professionals and women need to see this film because it demonstrates what some of us already know, low risk birth should be considered simple and normal.” 
— Jessica Taylor Goldstein, MD Family Medicine Obstetrical Care Provider and Resident Educator, review from
