A Midwife's Tale

Production of a feature-length film on the life and world of 18th-century American midwife Martha Ballard (1735–1812).

A Midwife's Tale: Discovering the World of Martha Ballard will reveal the process of community formation in a post-Revolutionary frontier town, as seen through the eyes of Martha Ballard — an ordinary woman who left behind a unique and detailed daily account of her life between 1785 and 1812. The film will explore die changes that took place in medical practice, religion, the economy, and family life during the decades of social upheaval that shook the new republic. The film will also take its audience into the process of historical discovery, revealing the historical detective work of Laurel Ulrich — bringing the exciting, original scholarship of her Pulitzer Prize winning book to a large national audience.
