We make it our business to demystify reproductive health. From menstruation to birth to menopause, our passion comes from seeing how powerful storytelling can create movements and shift paradigms. We are so proud of our award-winning films that have inspired a growing community of dedicated birth workers and wellness professionals - all working to ensure that women and gender-expansive people have the ability to make informed decisions
In 2012, one in three babies in America were delivered by c-section, despite the World Health Organization's recommendation that Cesarean births remain below 15 percent. How can these disturbing trend be reversed? In recent years, the idea of a collaborative care practice where doctors and midwives manage women's care together has begun to gain traction in the United States. The Mama Sherpas is a feature-length documentary film about women receiving their maternity care through midwife-doctor teams. We follow nurse midwives, the doctors they work with, and their patients to provide an investigative lens into how midwives work within the hospital system.
