With Two Souls: Two Midwives' Recollections of Love, Life, Birth, and Death in Rural Ethiopia (Paperback)
Indie is a classically trained anthropologist and a clinically trained midwife. She worked in Kyrgyzstan, Cambodia and Malawi before finally settling in Ethiopia. Atsede is a Gurage midwife with over a decade of experience dedicated to the women of Cheha woreda. She grew up a stone's throw from the hospital where she would later become the senior midwife, catching almost ten thousand babies. Women walk for hours to see her. After running the neonatal services and emergency obstetric response at a busy referral hospital, they chose to open their own clinic.
