The 1952 film All My Babies tells the story of "Miss Mary" Coley, a midwife in Albany, Georgia. Written, Directed and Produced by George C. Stoney for the Georgia Department of Public Health it was originally conceived as a midwife training film and in 2002 was added to the Library of Congress National Film Registry "as a culturally, historically, and artistically significant work."
Fifty-five years later, Stoney, with collaborator David Bagnall, returned to Georgia in search of the stories behind the film. With the help of the Coley family, the filmmakers contacted over 150 "babies" delivered by Mary Francis Hill Coley. Their stories paint a colorful picture of the friendship, pain, and trust involved in midwifery. Interviews from local health officials, practicing nurses, educators, and historians explore the history of southern midwives and their future. Recollections of an all-white crew working with a mostly black cast in the 1950's give a rare glimpse into film production and race relations.success pictures success spell success virtual learning center the best revenge is massive success was d day a success weight loss success stories what is the success rate of heart valve replacement surgery which of the following groups have had notable political success by litigating in federal courts? words that mean success books about success center for academic success fenbendazole cancer success stories how i raised myself from failure to success in selling morning affirmations for success nextgen success community pathways to success was the new deal a success or failure 5aa embryo success rate aes success login carpal tunnel surgery success rate cone biopsy success rate driving to success education is the key to success gamestop lake success hair success hair success fargo how do you define success how do you say success in spanish invitro fertilization success rate iron dome success rate keytruda success rate l5 s1 surgery success rate lake success, ny lumbar radiofrequency ablation success rate parvo treatment success rate positive quotes for success
