Working for Women's Health

I'm a Colorado woman with an interest in international women's health issues. I'm currently seeking a partner group to help support distribution of educational videos about childbirth, breastfeeding and other health concerns that will support women in rural areas worldwide. The company I work for, InJoy Childbirth and Parenting Videos, is based in Niwot, Colorado. They have offered to supply resources to create culturally appropriate materials in partnership with another agency. I hope someone on this site might know of a group that I can contact to make this happen!

amazing!

Wow Robin, I applaud your work, and I will certainly keep your request in mind as I sift through groups, offers, and requests.

Robin,
I'm also in Colorado (Denver), and I'm currently working with MSF to develop culturally sensitive training materials for national midwives in their projects. I will be getting a pattern for a soft pelvis model that I've heard can be taken to a local tailor and be made for cheap and easily and be of use for training local midwives in third world countries. When I was in Darfur I found it very difficult to make educational materials without the talent of being able to draw pictures that reflected the women we were serving. I would love to explore this project with you further.
