  • Help


    We, as a family, are running a birthing centre in the soul of Playa del Carmen. We need a confident midwife who speaks Spanish and has some knowledge about 'humanized and respectful birth', who can come to help for at least 3 months.

    As well as helping women during and after delivery we also need someone who can teach about what humanized birth is, who can help with breastfeeding and postpartum care.

    We would be super happy to host someone with a vision of the importance of multicultural exchange.

    //Dirigimos esta casa de partos en el corazón de la Riviera Maya, en Playa del Carmen. Solicitamos una partera capacitada que hable español y este a favor del parto humanizado y respetado. Que tenga disponibilidad para quedarse mínimo 3 meses.
    Que pueda enseñar sobre el concepto de parto humanizado, se encargue del postparto y ayude de manera regular en abrir y cerrar el centro. Algunos días pueden ser solo de atención de parto y postparto y otros de ayuda general en el centro y en redes sociales.

    Nos encanta la idea del intercambio y que mis hijos puedan compartir la cultura a través, de la música, el arte, etc.
