Miriam is a Home Birth Midwife

In America today caesarians and hospital births are the norm, but outside the mainstream there is a community of midwives who, with the families that make that choice, are perceived as the risk-takers.

We follow Miriam and a group of determined prospective mothers as they battle the unpredictable forces of nature from bacteria to the worst Super Storm in New York history, to fulfill the miracle of birth.
