Humanized childbirth in Guatemala

------>  45 DAYS OF CAMPAIGN  <------


* July 31 to September 13 *


The goal of this fundraising effort is the opening of a Midwifery House in Guatemala that specializes in providing care for women's sexual and reproductive health from the Midwifery Model. This care includes prenatal, childbirth and postpartum care, as well as gynecology care. All this with a comprehensive and holistic approach.

Midwifery focuses on physiological processes and frequent and less risky pathologies. Midwifery care is considered first tier health care in the majority of countries. Its functions include looking after the woman’s physical, emotional, spiritual, mental and social wellbeing. The Model's philosophy focuses on each woman as a complex individual and the emphasis is on respect for her autonomy and making her own decisions. A Midwifery House is a safe and loving space for all women.

In addition to the care provided by the midwives, the Midwifery House provides a community where women and families can access comprehensive health services, support groups, breastfeeding education, and other services. There is also continuing education for professionals in health issues, humanization, self-care, and the promotion of women's networks.

Your support will help more women and families in Guatemala to have access to warm, informed, safe and respectful care. Here, women are the main protagonists of their processes, contributing to efforts to eliminate obstetric and gynecological violence, and to reduce unnecessary interventions and overmedication.

What are the funds for?

The funds raised will finance purchases of everything needed to open and operate the Midwifery House: Supplies, equipment, clinical material, opening expenses, etc. Intuición Materna will launch and be operational in the second half of 2021.
