This suspenseful drama chronicles the events leading up to the trial of a respected midwife charged with the tragic death of one of her patients. “Midwives” premiers on Lifetime, Monday, 4/2/01 at 9:00 PM (ET/PT).
The subject matter may sound like a downer, but this is good television. Lacking any objectionable language or sexual exploitation, this film mesmerizes with skilled acting, a sensitive script and tight direction. “Midwives” examines a good family faced with a devastating problem. And guys, get this, the men are not boneheads or abusers. Thank you Lifetime. You finally figured out how to tell a story that uplifts women without belittling men. I appreciate that!
