In the shadow of Mount Oret in Acholi Land, Northern Uganda, Patricia studies to be a midwife. She helps new mothers through the physical pain and immense emotion of giving birth. In Kalongo, this remote village, there is no anesthesia except for the comforting tones of a midwife’s voice and the soft reassurance of her company.
