Northbound Birth

Dögg Mósesdóttir

A mother explores the history of home birth in Iceland and soon finds out she has touched upon a sensitive topic at a time of cut downs in the health care system and questions arise about the role of midwifes in birth and womens rights over their own body in the birthing process.
