Our Mission

Midwives have been providing pregnancy-related care to other women in Guatemala for thousands of years.  Each region and culture maintains it’s own traditions and customs designed to support a healthy pregnancy and delivery.   As professional midwives, we have received extensive University training in modern health sciences. Our mission is to provide quality care while honoring the customs and traditions of our community and the families we serve.

This mini documentary was created by Every Mother Counts and provides a glimpse into the important work these midwives perform each day.
