I am a Midwife is an innovative public education campaign designed specifically to educate women about midwifery as a high quality maternity care option. I am a Midwife is the most comprehensive and easily accessible tool available online for women seeking information about the midwifery model of care.
I am a Midwife campaign is a free series of eight short videos designed to answer a woman’s questions about how engaging the services of a midwife can achieve the kind of pregnancy and birth experience that most fits her values, culture, preferences, and needs. The video series explores the benefits of midwifery care and the full range of services a midwife provides. One video with a particular theme will be released each Friday for eight consecutive weeks beginning on May 5, 2012, International Day of the Midwife.
I am a Midwife offers a unique look at more than 40 real-life midwives and the work they do across the country providing care to women of all races and socioeconomic levels, in all childbirth settings including hospitals, birth centers and women’s homes. I am a Midwife describes why midwifery care is safe, satisfying, reduces disparities, decreases costs, and increases better outcomes for mothers and their newborns.
The free video series is widely disseminated using social media and is available on YouTube, at the Midwives Alliance of North America’s website, the Mothers Naturally website. View the video series below or via one of the social media sites listed above.
