For the next month we will be meeting with all 12 of the traditional birth attendants in villages and homes. The goal of the next four weeks is to document a variety of birth stories from the region. These stories will help us plan the future trainings around current traditions in the region. We also plan to learn more about time keeping methods that are used by the local women. They are not familar with our traditional calendar or clocks but rather work according to the seasons.
It is important to take the time to learn about these things before beginning the medical trainings in order to present the materials in a culturally respected and appropriate manner.
