Under the direction of Cotacachi indigenous professionals Kathary and Dra. Kaya Alta, K’allam’p is renovating their newly purchased city building to provide local indigenous midwives (parteras) with a space to meet together, examine pregnant patients, provide culturally appropriate patient education and eventually hold local and international training workshops and conferences.
These local midwives also are creating a book that they wish to publish with the intention of sharing their ancestral knowledge with other midwives.
K'allam'p's midwifery project is going to need examination tables, beds, medical instruments and supplies, desks, baby blankets and rocking chairs. We will post the official list of needed items soon!
More details to come. Meanwhile, you can be one of the first donors to support this new initiative at:
