PALS Doulas invited me to Seattle for a private screening for their doulas. It was there that I met Michelle Sarju, Faisa Farole and Hawa Mohamud of Open Arms Perinatal Services. They invited me to host a small screening in the Somali Community. As a Somali filmmaker I was thrilled! Faisa made it happen in just a couple of days. We had a fun screening and potluck with a discussion afterward that took place in Somali.

The Somali Community in Seattle has the highest cesarean rate in the country. After the screening of Catching Babies the Somali doulas, Hawa Mohamud, Faisa Farole and Habiba organized with the fierce women of the Somali community to create a Somali birth education group! Filmmaker dream come true!
