Midwives in Mexico
Pregnant mothers in Chiapas, Mexico, die at a rate of more than 100 per 100,000 live births. It's a travesty that a group of midwives in Carmen Zacatal is combatting to great effect: The maternal death rate there has dropped to almost zero. Maternal and infant nutrtion and health are closely linked, so in recognition of World Health Day, check out this video about the Mexican midwives.
