Thursday Feb 23 in Guatemala

Hello to any who dropped in to this week’s blog posts from Guatemala, We’re enjoying perfect 75 degree weather and completed our 3rd day of training in San José Pinula. A couple of the supervisory staff have stopped by and asked that we do the training for all the doctors and nurses there. A good sign! Maybe during our next trip!
During today’s training while discussing patients dying, a midwife told her story of bleeding, hysterectomy and near death, and ended her story with a quite shocking quote I will remember: “A pregnant woman always has one foot in the grave.” This is a sad commentary; Supporting Safe Birth will continue to provide education to these amazing midwives as long as we can. Here’s a few photos of today’s class. Hasta luego!
