Sexuality, Birth and the Power of Women
Naoli has been an admirer, active advocate and promoter of natural and instinctive birth since childhood. As a midwife, she has already organized (and still organizes) conferences that mixed diverse cultures and social groups of traditional and professional midwives, with the aim of maintaining the dignity and wisdom of traditional childbirth, while expanding the scope of practice for all the midwives of the world. Naoli has three children born at home and dedicates her life to teaching, creating artistic materials to promote natural childbirth and to provide information to mothers and families who wish to deliver at home. She has participated in more than 1600 births since 1987. Naoli is Mexican, but lives in Brazil, where she practices the profession and teaches in workshops related to obstetrics and sexuality.
