I just signed in and read your email and I am very surprised that you have not found anyone...Trained as a CPM at the US mexican border, I have heard of so many midwives wanting to go and live in central or south america....I just assumed(..) there was a healthy network of midwives of all nations in Mexico and Guatemala...I know of a birth center in the Chiapas, called Luna Maya, but your friend is probably not interested in travelling so far...
Just as I am starting to look at other options in terms of practicing...I am french/american based in France and the road to get my CPM training validated in France seems endless. I am considering volunteering abroad to keep practicing and being with women THAT way...Did I read you correctly: there are volunteer opportunities to work with traditional Mayan midwives?
If I would find a place to volunteer for in Guatemala, I'd come and visit you and your friend.
Blessings and good luck, Sarah
