Short Film Praises MidwivesMadeline Holler
One of the 10 shortlisted films in Canada’s National Film Board competition is this little six-minute snippet of life as a U.K. midwife. The film, “Mother of Many,” was created by Emma Lazenby, once a designer for the children’s series “Charlie and Lola.”
The cartoon follows a day in the life of a hospital midwife, showing her as a calming presence during “the most dangerous journey.” It’s not super graphic, but also NSFW.

Lazenby dedicates her short to her mother, who worked as a midwife when Lazenby was a child.
