I am really interested in learning more about health and birth education for mothers in the third world. In Cambodia, one of the visiting western doctors that I met was really frustrated by the lack of pre-natal and post-natal care and education for women. Having no medical background myself, but a strong interest in seeing mothers succeed in bringing healthy babies into the world and keeping them healthy, I wanted to learn how to help.
Well… now I am learning. I am looking into birth doula and postpartum doula certification. I found DONA International, an association of doulas, which has a lot of information. I also found BirthWorks nearby in New Jersey. It just seems like a good fit: supporting women before and after they give birth through education and yoga.
