Reclaiming Midwives: Stills from “All My Babies”

September 10 – October 12, 2006
An exhibition documenting the life and work of Mary Coley an African-American midwife who worked in Georgia for over thirty years. The photographs portrayed the impact “Miss Mary” had on the lives of the women in her county who relied on her for prenatal care and for overseeing their childbirths. Coley and her colleagues were often the only medical care available to southern African American women and their success spawned the popular southern saying, “Midwives got us here.”
