If you are seeking choices and information for a better birth experience in Panama, you've come to the right place. The alternative birthing community here is very small -- we hope you'll join us!
The c-section and intervention rates in Panama are super high at the World Health Organization WHO published cesarean rate of a whopping forty-nine percent! The WHO's maximum recommendation is no higher than 10-15%. The certified midwife count is nil outside the indigenous interiors where unsafe practices yield high infant and maternal deaths. We seek to restore the balance thru ecological use of information, education and technology.
Meet our founders and board. We want change. Through us, you'll find access to all the pregnancy, birthing and post-natal support there is to discover in this compact, developing country. Know your birthing options. For articles and resources see our "From the Hips" blog. Or join our efforts helping women have a more rewarding journey into motherhood. Help us bring safer birthing to the impoverished interior of this land.
