CASA’s Seventeenth Class of Midwives Graduates

By Alma Lucero Martínez

In the 1980s, the nonprofit organization CASA gave traditional midwives from the Mexican central region support in offering training in family pacification, after the midwives approached CASA looking for help.

Based on these needs, San Miguel de Allende saw the opening of the first professional midwives school for women, accredited by the Secretary of Education of Guanajuato. According to the agreement 176-97, on July 4, 1997, C.C.T. 11PETO143N[MA1] . CASA has since contributed to México’s midwife advances. In 2011, CASA said that technical midwives were integrated into the sectorial catalog of posts with the code M02117.[MA2]

Now, the CASA school’s seventeenth class of professional midwives will graduate on Saturday, June 23. Ten women engaged in improving the attention of maternal and perinatal health in San Miguel will be officially named professional midwives. They will have as their class “godfather” Esteban Moctezuma Barragán, who has a degree in economics and law from the National Autonomous University of Mexico, a master’s degree in political economy from the University of Cambridge, England, and a diploma in Regional Development from Tokyo, Japan. He is president of Fundacion Azteca and an economist and lawyer with one of the most complete political careers. He is the author of important works on education, globalization, and public administration.

The mass will be at 3pm at Nuestra Señora de la Salud Church, and the civil act will be at 4pm at Santa Julia 15 in Colonia Santa Julia.

[MA1]I would cut this. This will confuse English language readers, who are not used to seeing this kind of documentation listed in a news article.

[MA2]I would cut this too. It’s too deeply inside information that no one besides the author and CASA’s staff, perhaps, cares about.
