Midwife Mary

It's a new millenium and Midwife Mary is called to that ancient, time-honored profession -- midwifery!  Mary is ready to attend a homebirth with just about everything that's needed. 

For comfort, Mary has a pink T-shirt with a Le Leche League motif and she also has a pair of "Birkenstocks."   Her birth bag includes herbal tinctures, a and other items, nasal syringe, placenta bowl, cord tape, clipboard, scale and sling for weighing the baby, baby cap and a box of gloves.  Also included are 4 towels for drying the baby and 2 wash cloths for mom's perineum. To help May pass time at a long birth, she brings her copy of The Compleat Mother magazine.

Midwife Mary is dressed in slacks or dress, depending on availability.  You may request either blond, red or dark brown hair.

Midwives have existed since the beginning of humanity. Why, then, is it so difficult to find a midwife in America?  What events occurred between the mid 1800's until the present day which nearly made midwifery extinct in America? And why are more families now looking into homebirth as a refuge from hospital care?
Home Sweet Homebirth provides the answers. Interviews with noted doctors, historians and midwives. Very interesting and informative video.
