All My Babies: A Midwife's Own Story


Distributed by the Georgia Department of Public Health, this film was used to ‘promote cooperation’ between Black midwives—who delivered most of the babies for Black and white mothers in the South—and ‘modern health’ doctors. The film follows a Black midwife, Mary Francis Hill Coley, who has delivered over 3,000 babies.
