Hanaa Kassem has worked as an OB/GYN since 1992 with a focus on natural birth techniques, and is the only the Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth teacher in Egypt. She works currently as Specialist of Obstetrics and Gynecology at The Alexandria Regional Centre for Women’s Health and Development, a regional center for women in Egypt and Africa. The center has provided many training courses for nurses, midwives and doctors from Sudan and all over Egypt and Africa in maternity care, antenatal care and midwife skills.
One of Hanaa’s goals for international birth is to provide training for doulas, as there are currently only a handful of doulas in Egypt, all foreigners. Hanaa tells Midwifery Today: “I have the passion to spread natural birth and homebirth throughout Egypt.” Hanaa’s languages include Arabic and English.
