Virtual Back to Class: Birthing a Movement: Midwives, Law , and the Politics of Reproductive Care

Drake University Professor Renée Cramer will take a dive into her book, Birthing a Movement: Midwives, Law, and the Politics of Reproductive Care. This book traces the movement for legal status of certified professional midwives in Iowa, South Dakota, and Missouri. With interviews from midwives, moms, and advocates, it argues that it takes persistence, politics, and quite a bit of luck, to achieve lasting cultural change and access to safe out-of-hospital births.
