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.

When: Wednesday, April 28 at 7:00 pm CT
Platform: Zoom (Link will be emailed to registered participants prior to the event.)

About the Program: Back to Class features speakers from Drake's campus in a virtual setting. Bulldogs are invited to join from wherever they are to learn about unique topics, hear from voices on campus, and connect with the Drake community.
