Storyline

This beautiful film is the story of "Miss Mary" Coley, an African-American midwife more than half a century ago in rural Georgia. Conceived as a demonstration film for illiterate "granny" midwives, its production sponsored by the Georgia Department of Public Health, All My Babies quickly transcended its initial purpose. It was used around the world by UNESCO and has become an enduring classic of non-fiction film. Written by Anonymous

Let's hear it for live birth.
5 June 2003 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

I was absolutely amazed by the qualtiy of this film when I saw it in the Mary Pickford Theater at the Library of Congress. The film was inducted into the National Film Registry in 2002,a nd for just cause. More things like this need to be saved, and more people need to see them.
