I have self-published a book about maternal health and politics of NGOs - Babies in the Cornfield: Stories of Maternal Health and Death from Around the World. I have been working as a nurse and later a midwife since I was 24, and for the past 15 years have been working in international health programs for various organizations. I have a master's degree in Clinical Health Education from California and another MA in Science and Medical Writing from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. I currently train midwives and obstetricians in emergency obstetric care in developing countries, evaluate maternal and newborn programs for countries and organizations, write training manuals and textbooks for a paycheck (English and Spanish), and am involved in health policy in Latin American countries through our organization to promote humanization of childbirth [www.nuestroparto.cl]. I live in Chile with my partner of 14 years.
