Global Midwifery

International Doula

Tomorrow I am off to Nairobi to help a friend as she trains doulas. Very excited to participate, and you can follow the story at the Birth in Central Africa blog, even though Nairobi isn’t central.

As part of our issues in midwifery class each student midwife had to present on a topic of current interest to midwives.  I chose the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health. I felt confident before the presentation, but 15 minutes goes fast and I’m not sure I did a good job of explaining everything.  If you are interested in global midwifery (and missed my presentation in class today 😉  check out their website to see what the member organizations are doing.
