USF Health midwives to host screening of “The Mama Sherpas”

Midwives from USF Health will host a free screening of The Mama Sherpas at 6 p.m., Monday, Sept. 28, at the Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS) second-floor auditorium, 124 S. Franklin St., Tampa, FL 33602.  The documentary will be followed by a panel discussion with midwives, physicians and other representatives from the USF Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

The film tells the story of midwives attending births in hospital settings, working in partnership with physicians.  Research has demonstrated that collaborative care models produce better outcomes for mother and baby, including fewer C-sections.  The documentary offers an intimate look at how midwives across the United States work within the hospital system to help improve the birthing process.

The event is open to the public, but please RSVP at
