Lecture: Bringing together the two worlds of Mexican Traditional Midwifery and Modern Obstetrics


In this lecture, Naoli will share with us her vision and experiences of her practice of bridging the worlds of the traditional and modern midwifery.
Naoli loves sharing her experience as an active midwife, educator, anthropologist, and teacher in workshops, seminars and talks and in the past three decades she has taught thousands of people all around the world. 

She has a gift for story telling and loves the process of teaching, as just like births, it involves creativity, intuition and improvisation.
Naoli has actively and tirelessly worked as a home birth midwife, weaving her understanding and practice of Traditional midwifery with her Professional midwifery training.
From her powerful and respectful homage payed to traditional midwifery and the recognition of the need to share knowledge between the different types of midwiferies, have come her first and many workshops entitled “Combining Traditional and Professional Midwifery”.

Naoli organised the first 10 Midwifery Conferences in Mexico bringing for the first time Traditional and Professional midwives from all regions of Mexico, Guatemala, USA, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Perú, Italia, England, France and Germany in an ideological, professional and social setting.

Naoli has has been invited as Keynote speaker at many birth conferences and has performed workshops, seminars and talks for the last 30 years in over 30 countries around the world
In the 35+ years that she has been a midwife, Naoli has invented and created many useful birth related tools and techniques, which she has generously shared with thousands of women and midwives around the globe.
