Maggie Traoré received her NARM certification in 2006 and is back in her "home" country now. Maggie reports: "We really need the input from other countries midwives to move forward our presentation in Burkina Faso. Burkina Faso is one of the three poorest countries in the world. We have in mind to do some research projects, birth preparation counseling/classes, and other projects to promote and propagate safe, healthy, evidence-based maternity practices."
