The Centro Integral de Parto Natural Ixchel is the only one of its kind in Guatemala and provides respectful, personalized and professional care to women during their whole life cycle, in a dignified environment that is safe for their health.

Our model of care combines profesional midwifery with modern obstetrics and gynecology in order for women to have the best possible experience while having their individual health care needs attended to. The woman’s own opinions and values regarding their sexual and reproductive health are our main interest.

During pregnancy, birth and postpartum it is our objective that every woman should have a special and pleasant experience so she can live her motherhood fully, naturally and safely.
