Sages and Rebels

The practice of midwives is floundering in Quebec and many say it is in ultimate decline. This contrasts with the fact that there are not enough practising midwives to provide parents in Quebec the birth support they are seeking as the demand for “outside-of-the-hospital-system” services is growing and the role of midwives in providing these services should be deemed essential. This documentary represents a chronicle of the announced provincial demise of an essential “life-giving” service that is, all the same, flourishing in the province of BC and other parts of Canada.
