Birth of a Surgeon - Emilia Cumbane, Midwive
Amazing video about Childbirth in poverty stricken countrys and the program to help mothers deliver their infants safer. This is so amazing. I mean Omgosh amazing~!! Watch it. Please..take the time. This is very powerful..
"With more than half a million women dying in pregnancy or childbirth worldwide, Mozambique’s surgical training programs are being hailed as a model solution in confronting the maternal health crisis facing developing countries. The film captures one woman’s story on the frontlines of improving maternal mortality but it also demonstrates how low-cost, community-based health initiatives are changing the face of public health in Africa.
The film Birth of a Surgeon follows Emilia Cumbane, one of the first midwives-in-training. She performs Cesareans and hysterectomies in makeshift operating rooms in rural Mozambique. We follow Cumbane from her home in the Mozambican capital Maputo, into intensive medical classes, through night shifts in the delivery wards, and watch as she fights for recognition of her surgical competence."
RN working nights L&D in a large teaching hospital learning how to help newborns join the human race. My job is a blessing and I want to be really good at it.
