Situated deep within the Amazon rainforest, Amupakin is a women-led birthing center focused on traditional midwifery practices. Conserving indigenous birthing methods that were practiced for centuries until the arrival of Western medicine, Amupakin helps women with natural, vertical births through traditional tools and techniques based on ancestral wisdom handed down for generations, including plant medicines and chants. The center also offers traditional steam baths and traditional medicine to both men and women, as well as the opportunity for tourists to stay at the center and learn about Kichwa culture and gain a deeper understanding of the forest. The homestay experience grants the center economic sustainability, so that it can continue to train women in traditional Kichwa midwifery practices and preserve their indigenous culture.
Travelers visiting Amupakin can enjoy an indigenous homestay experience as well as local meals and nature tours, where they can learn more about traditional midwifery practices and indigenous culture.
