We are a Mexican non-profit organization working to promote sexual and reproductive rights and provide sexual and reproductive healthcare to women and adolescents, based on the model of Professional Midwifery with a holistic approach, considering women as key agents in their decision-making process.
Through community education, dignified and qualified healthcare, and formal training based on the model of professional midwifery, we promote respect for sexual and reproductive health and rights for women and adolescents by strengthening their autonomous decision-making process and self-care in relation to their bodies, sexuality and reproduction.
We have become a leading state organization in establishing midwifery as an autonomous profession and in promoting sexual and reproductive health and rights, empowering women and adolescents to make free, conscious and informed decisions about their healthcare and sexuality, and working toward the construction of a more equal society, where women’s rights are fully recognized.
