For Producer/Director Brigid Maher, the documentary idea comes from a personal experience. Maher had a cesarean birth with her first son. But, when pregnant with her daughter, she couldn’t imagine recovering from another C-section while caring for a newborn and a 4 year old. Maher chose to deliver with a midwifery practice in a Washington, D.C. hospital and had a successful vaginal birth of a 9 pound 10 ounce, healthy, baby girl. In the process, she discovered that many people did not know that the majority of midwives work within the hospital system. Maher realized that this was an unheard story ready to be told.
