A Midwife Like Me

A Midwife Like Me shows how dedicated and skilled midwives can help women have the best experience before, during and after childbirth, encouraging them to make their own informed decisions around normal birth practice.

A pen and ink illustration style was chosen to complement the live-action elements of the film. We worked closely with the in-house team and the Editor, Mike Paterson, to effectively combine the two.

Her Excellency Toyin Saraki, Founder and President of The Wellbeing Foundation Africa voiced the film.

The film is available in English, French and Spanish on the Medical Aid Films website.
