NUI Galway’s School of Nursing and Midwifery in partnership with Cuidiú, the Irish Childbirth Trust, are hosting a free public screening of “MILK – Born Into This World” on Thursday, 3 December, at 7pm in Áras Moyola, NUI Galway.

The director of the film, Noemí Weis will be available via Skype from Canada for a Q&A session after the screening.

Through an intimate and artistic lens, MILK brings a universal perspective on the politics, commercialisation and controversies surrounding birth and infant feeding over the canvas of stunningly beautiful visuals and poignant voices from around the globe. Inspiring, informative, provocative and sensitive, MILK celebrates bringing a new life into this World with a strong call to action and reflection. See the film’s trailer at www.milkhood.com.

Speaking ahead of the event, Tara Durkin of Cuidiú Galway said: “This special public screening of Milk, ahead of its general release in Europe, is an exciting chance for Galway’s mothers, fathers, healthcare professionals, students, friends, indeed anyone with an interest in how we birth and feed our babies, to get together to see a powerful new documentary – and discuss it with the director!”  

This is the fourth event of the School of Nursing and Midwifery Public Lecture Series, an innovative community outreach initiative which has previously focussed on Suicide Prevention, Ebola Awareness and Elder Abuse. The series aims to share knowledge and expertise on health matters with our local communities.

The event is open to the public and free of charge but tickets must be pre-booked at www.eventbrite.ie/e/milk-born-into-this-world-tickets-19448984436.
