A couple Fridays back, I went to an early screening of Birth Story, with my super-cool-hippy friend who I aspire to be like (Yes Kirston, that's your official title over here). Birth Story is a documentary, which chronicles the life's work of Ina May Gaskin, arguably the world's most famous midwife and a personal hero of mine.
It was beautiful! Both from a cinematographic standpoint and in its empowerment of women, birthing and otherwise, the world over. This movie made me want to give birth again...and that's saying something!
If you get an opportunity to see this film, do! Better yet, make an opportunity to see it!
