“Birth Right” is a short documentary created by Emily Jackson and Neeta Kirpalani, students in the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Ethnographic Filmmaking class, which explores the efforts of the Alabama Birth Coalition to legalize Certified Professional Midwife- attended home birth. In times past the state of Alabama licensed thousands of state-trained midwives who served Alabama’s families. Today there are zero legally-recognized midwives providing home birth services.
