        Mary Francis Hill Coley | Georgia Stories

        Mary Francis Hill Coley became a renowned Georgia midwife who delivered thousands of babies during her life. She was born in a Georgia where women were often treated as less than equal citizens, and where, for poor and black women, the struggle was compounded. With little, if any, formal schooling, she became an accomplished and recognized midwife, an advocate for health care who saw no racial barriers, as documented in the award winning film, "All My Babies," in 1952.
