This series is based on interviews with Ester, a comadrona (midwife) that I interviewed while studying at the San Pedro Spanish School in Guatemala. Ester tells us about the service provided by the comadronas of San Pedro and how family planning is now much more common than before. We also talk with Dr. Francisco Méndez, a family practice doctor from Guatemala who feels that the healthcare system of Guatemala would collapse without las comadronas. The premium lessons are interactive. We review the essential vocabulary and grammar, and we give you the opportunity to interpret between English and Spanish.
