Service of a Comadrona – Interview in Spanish

Interview with a Comadrona

Listen to an interview with a comadrona from Guatemala in Spanish. She tells us about the care that comadronas provide around childbirth. Listen for the Spanish word used for childbirth and delivery.

I interviewed Ester while studying at the San Pedro Spanish School with my niece. To hear more about our experience in San Pedro, check out the podcast: Podcasts from Guatemala.

Javier and I Reflect on the Interview

Javier and I reflect on the holistic service provided by the comadronas of San Pedro.

M: Hola Javier.
J: Hola Molly. ¿Cómo estás?
M: Muy bien. ¿Y cómo te va en Guatemala?
J: Magníficamente. Otro día en el paraíso. ¿Y tú?
M: Muy bien. Y me alegra que todo te vaya bien en Guatemala. Y hoy vamos a empezar una nueva serie basada en una entrevista con la estimada comadrona Ester.
J: Por supuesto que sí, la estimadísima Ester. Una… un gran saludo de Ester para ti.
M: Oh gracias… e igualmente. Un saludo de mi parte a Ester.
