Dr. Comello has been working with birthing families for over 35 years. She taught local birth attendants in Guatemala, Tanzania, and the Philippines for 11 years, with the past 4 years focusing on Helping Mothers Survive and Helping Babies Breathe. This work was the focus of research for her Doctorate of Nursing Practice (2016), which found that teaching these modules resulted in betterbirth outcomes. Her goal is to develop partnerships to increase access to all of these programs in Guatemala.
