Notes from the Field: New Year, New Life!

My first homebirth here in Santiago, Atitlan. We were in the rural coffee feilds, in a small one room tin roofed house. I had to repair her lacerations with a camping headlight and some sutures and lidocaine…all while sitting cross-legged on her bed . We were to far from any medical facility and I had to respond quickly . Thanks to Saving Mothers’ clean birth kit, all was well!
