Midwife International is currently working with Asociación Manos Abiertas (AMA), a locally run women’s health and midwifery clinic that is proud to provide sliding scale services to high-need populations near Antigua, Guatemala. AMA also houses a training and education program for new midwives, the first professional midwifery school in Guatemala. Our efforts with AMA will work to ensure that all women in the surrounding communities have access to the compassionate care that AMA offers, to develop programs that build professional skills for local midwives, and to help maintain a consistently clean and well-functioning care facility. Be a part of the solution.

Woman is the first environment. In pregnancy our bodies sustain life. At the breast of women, the generations are nourished. From the bodies of women flows the relationship of those generations both to society and the natural world. In this way the earth is our mother, the old people said in this way we as women are earth.
