A day in the life of an Aztec midwife | Kay Read

published 4 months ago

The midwife Xoquauhtli has a difficult choice to make. She owes a debt to her patron Teteoinnan, the female warrior goddess at the center of the Aztec seasonal festival, who must be kept happy or she will bring bad luck. Xoquauhtli should participate in the festival today, but one of her patients could go into labor any minute. Kay Read outlines a day in the life of an Aztec midwife. [Directed by AIM Creative Studios, narrated by Bethany Cutmore-Scott, music by André Aires].
