Hi all, excited to share our new film @thelastpartera -- follow along here and on FB to get updates on this documentary feature in production. 🙏 #Repost@thelastpartera ・・・
These are the hands of Doña Miriam Elizando that have delivered more than 2,000 babies. At 95 years old, she is the last living partera — traditional midwife — in the Turrialba Valley of Costa Rica.
As Doña Miriam approaches 100 years old, her ability to provide care to the region’s expectant mothers is limited. Without a partera to assist them through pregnancy, many women in the Turrialba Valley are left with no option but the public hospital, where they receive minimal care and are often denied choice in the way they experience childbirth.
THE LAST PARTERA is a documentary film in production about women’s health, choice, and empowerment in the Turrialba Valley of Costa Rica.

Around the time we first met, Taylor gave me a potted orchid and said, "Here, I got you this fern." I still have that "fern" and tend to it, but this is my new love fern. I definitely couldn't have told you that the fern-bearer in a tank top and backwards hat would become my best companion and forever person, but I'm exceedingly grateful that he did. ❤🌹💐🌸 #valentines#ferns#orchids#love#favoriteperson
Remembering this moment a year ago when I ran with some of my favorite LA ladies down a pier to catch the over-the-water sunset that only West Coasters enjoy. Holding these hearts close to my heart today ❤. #la #🙏 #kodakportra400
