Join us for a free, online screening of Birth Wars and discussion with award-winning filmmaker Janet Jarman on October. 14th from 7-9:00 p.m.  

Told through deeply personal stories, Birth Wars chronicles a power struggle between doctors and midwives in Mexico about whose vision of childbirth should prevail. The film takes viewers on a journey into two worlds riven by prejudices and antagonism and explores how building bridges between these worlds could help save lives. Birth Wars touches on many important and relevant themes, including health equity, human rights, obstetric violence, and structural racism.

You can sign up here. After signing up you will receive a Zoom link for the event.

Flier for event showing details that are in the text of this post, a small image of the filmmaker, and a large, black and white image of a woman from the shoulders up with her head on the pillow who seems to be on oxygen.
