Since 2007, The Jungle Mamas Program has been working in solidarity with the indigenous Achuar women and men of the Ecuadorian Amazon in safe birthing and basic community health. Our team of dedicated midwives works to train birth attendants in prevention, treatment of birth emergencies and basic health issues, with an intercultural approach that also values local healing and birth traditions. In addition to post-partum hemorrhage, diarrhea from water contamination is one of the biggest threats to the health of Achuar women and children.
