“I’ve delivered six generations of children. I didn’t count exactly but the number is around 2,000 babies.”
In San Pedro La Laguna, Guatemala, it is safe to say that everyone knows of a midwife named Donna Chona Rax, and they also were probably brought into this world by her special hands. Although not notable, she is an example of the vastness and depth of the profession of nursing.
In celebration of Year of The Nurse and Midwife, Donna we celebrate you.
IN MEMORY Doña Chona Rax (1924-2016)
