MIRIAM: HOME DELIVERY

Expected to Attend: Director Juliet Jordan, Editor Kathryn Barnier, Composer Rod Edge, and Subject Miriam Schwarzschild

WORLD PREMIERE Miriam: Home Delivery 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. Juliet Jordan 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.

This screening is co-presented with Every Mother Counts.
