with fellow midwives, outside MLL

 

i spent the last 4 months here at Maternidad La Luz, a high volume birth center on the border of El Paso and Juárez, working as a student midwife.  under supervision i provided complete primary care including prenatal, birth, and postpartum services.  the schedule involved 24-hour clinical shifts every third day (sometimes every other day), and classes, peer reviews, and meetings in between.  along with the challenges of staying up all day and all night, i humbly learned the lessons of birth, studied midwifery academically, and spoke to all the clients in Spanish.  well, i did my best anyway.  🙂

first day of work
