BirthMatters, International, began teaching in Guatemala in 2008…working with nursing students, indigenous midwives (comadronas), birth centers, public and private hospitals … even a volunteer fire department. In response to her work with Casa Materna and the Universidad Rafael Landivar, Connie was named an honorary citizen of Huehuetenango, Guatemala.
If you’ve ever considered sharing your passion for birth with a developing country, a trip to Guatemala might be in your future. Please contact BirthMatters, International, for more information regarding this humanitarian adventure.
