Please join us for a fundraiser screening and discussion of the documentary Why Not Home? We will carry on the generosity of this holiday season on January 15 to raise money for Open Arms Perinatal Services. Open Arms is the only non-profit providing doula services specifically for low-income women in Washington State.
After the film, join us for a discussion panel with local health care practitioners, hosted by Midwife Seattle. Discussion will be from 4pm-5pm. Light refreshments will be provided after the film.
About the film:
With the normalizing of hospital birth, the notion of home birth carries a certain stigma and evokes fear and judgment from many. Why not Home? reveals not only the scientific data about safety and interventions in birth, but also the beauty and value of this rite of passage. The documentary tells the stories of doctors, nurses, and midwives who have attended hundreds of hospital births, yet chose to have their children at home. This personal and intimate look at birth at home and in the hospital has the potential to influence people and policy in a way previously unseen.
Beyond the personal stories, Why Not Home? is a critical and thoroughly researched look at how we are providing maternity care in the US and the choices we are giving women and families about that care. Maternal mortality rates are rising in the US at a time when they are falling in every other industrialized country. Why Not Home? challenges viewers to move beyond the polarization and judgement that has plagued this issue for decades and instead embrace a more integrated and collaborative model for the future.
