Day 5

I spent the day at a birth center. I loved it. The 3 women who work there also live there. When a mother shows up they are ready to care for her. Midwifery as a profession is a new idea here in Bangladesh. I really hope the women embrace it.
Everyone was so welcoming. We were given a tour of the center, walked around the grounds, met their babies, served tea and toast, ate fruit I had never tasted and met brand new baby goats.
While I don’t share a common language with these women, the bond was still there. We are midwives
