Giving Birth in Dubai with Midwife Cecile de Scally

This week is the first in our interview series where we speak to birth workers making a difference around the world.

Cecile and Karen trained at Addington Hospital in Durban, South Africa in 1980 something (yes! they are “that old”…) and then years later, they met up when they were both workingin the Middle East. They both hold a vision of restoring normality to birth through effective prenatal education, so Karen and Charlene could not wait to catch up and find out what she’s been up to and pick her brains about all things pregnancy and birth in Dubai.
