Director:
Juliet Jordan

Premiere:
DOC NYC 2015

Select Festivals:

About:
A portrait of a modern-day midwife.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Juliet Jordan offers an inside look at what some consider to be the world’s second-oldest profession: midwifery. As a homebirth midwife, Miriam performs a service once commonplace, but now increasingly rare as the process of childbirth firmly moved to a hospital setting. The filmmaker immerses viewers in Miriam’s mission, driving along with her across NYC as she assists expectant mothers, from her clients among the Orthodox Jewish community to the dramatic home birth that falls during the Hurricane Sandy blackout.
