Merideth Geers has always been a nurturer. She was the girl who would take care of strays and patch up the younger kids after a cut or scrape. Now she's a certified nurse midwife and helps facilitate safe and natural home births. Often at the expense of her own family, every patient becomes a surrogate daughter, someone else to care for, lose sleep over and cherish. In turn, she becomes an indelible part of another family. This film was produced for the 2013 Fall Workshop at Syracuse University.
