WE CAUGHT UP WITH DRA. T'KARIMA TICITL, LICENSED AND CERTIFIED MIDWIFE, AND ASKED HER SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT MAKES HER SO SUCCESSFUL.
🌸 My oldest son, Axayacatl was born on November 16, 2006, while pregnant with him, I thought so much about birth and life givers. To make a long story short, the midwife I had seen for my prenatal care with Axayacatl no longer wanted to help me with a home birth in a temazkalli, three days before my guess date, I looked for a new midwife. In this search, I remember thinking, if I was just a midwife, I could do it myself. Then, I thought, I’m about to be a mother, I can do the birth myself. This was honestly the first time I thought of becoming a midwife. Then in a peyotl ceremony, I prayed about this thought, that evening, it was clear, tatewari (fire) showed me that this would be my path. By the morning water prayer, I saw this as my life, my calling, I would sit behind the sacred hikuri and receive babies the rest of my life, so I enrolled in a midwifery program. No matter all the bumps in my path over the years, I was determined to complete this program. With the births of my two other sons, Kuauhteotl and Tletlhuitzin, I was working towards becoming a midwife. In 2019, I became a certified midwife and I am committed to home births the rest of my life. I look forward to being your midwife, in your home. Many blessings.
