I posted this on the Jobs board but got no
I have a friend who wants to know if there is any demand for a midwife/birthing center anywhere in Belize. Who could she ask about the 'red-tape' to set one up - if there is a demand, etc? it would be a business not a job but might create some jobs.

In doing some Internet research recently, I came across a lengthy report on a visit to Belize by a mid-wife group. I can't recall now the name of the group or the URL but they publish a newsletter. You might search using key words Belize and mid-wife or similar and might turn it up.

There clearly is a need for this sort of thing in Belize. However, I don't know what kind of red tape one might run across in establishing it.

We've got plenty of very good midwives here in Belize already. One ofmy favorites is Miss Hortense in ladyville, who has done at least a 1/2 dozen speaking engagements in the US.

Look her up if you come to Belize.

Nevermind Katie Valks negativism... shes always pimping for someone or other. There are many places in Belize with no midwife or birthing assistance of any kind.
