Ina May Gaskin, the godmother of modern midwifery, and her husband, Stephen Gaskin, founder of Plenty International, was interviewed by Lisa Reagan, Pathways Associate Editor in Washington, DC, in July 2011 about birth, midwives, The Farm, and being "Technicolor Amish".

This memorable discussion between Ina May and Stephen, who have been together for more than 30 years, includes Stephen sharing his advice to men to "act like knights" and "pledge your sword to a lady. Protect those who need protecting." Ina May and Stephen remember the trucks on The Farm, why midwives are the best drivers and conversations with international physicians who have advocated for natural birth as a human right.

Ina May was presented the Right Livelihood Award in Sweden in December 2011. Stephen was the first recipient of the award in 1980. The award is considered to be the "alternative Nobel prize".
