I’m very glad to have the Birth Culture project featured in the Guardian’s “My Best Shot” column. Have a look at their previous posts, too – some really interesting work on there.
You can see more photographs from the project here.
My photographs of intercultural midwifery were recently published on the Daily Beast. It’s very exciting to have this work seen by a wider audience!
I’ve been blogging for Every Mother Counts this month – they’re a great organization dedicated to education and advocacy for global maternal health. Here’s a link to the first post. I’m so pleased to be involved with EMC in their important work.
Here are some photos from my most recent trip for my Birth and Culture project.
In this first post, students from CASA, Mexico’s only government-accredited midwifery training program, prepared for a trip to rural villages where they studied with Mayan traditional midwives. At their school in San Miguel de Allende, they practiced giving presentations on women’s health and responding to birth emergencies. And in CASA’s hospital, a local traditional midwife delivered a woman’s fifth baby.
Next post: the journey.
