Centro de Parto Natural

New Location as of July 2022

Hello! we have some news.

Being in constant movement is how nature flows, how water remains pure  and how birth takes place.

“Centro de Parto Natural” is the original name of our freestanding birth center, the first place in Guatemala where women could give birth in water with midwives experienced in this type of delivery. In 2022, after deep introspection and evaluation about what is best for our future mothers and how we can fully and safely exercise our profession, we decided to return to our roots and be faithful to our philosophy.

 

We chose to conclude the 5 years that we worked with a more institutional system with doctors and surgeons and take a step forward and a step towards faith. Faith that families who genuinely want to achieve their respectful and natural childbirth would find us in this independent midwifery center - outside of medical institutions. A step of deep trust in the mother's body, in the mechanisms of childbirth and in our abilities as health providers.

 

Now 2 minutes away from the best hospitals in the capital city in zone 10 (literally a block and a half away), but in our own intimate space, where the pace of the body, the physiology of women and the participation and strength of babies are respected. We hope that our new space gives you the confidence and strength to give birth on your own terms.

In this new location we hope to expand our services and make you feel really at home.

With love,

Hannah Freiwald,  Diana Freiwald and the entire team at Parto Natural Guatemala.
