three sisters

The three Tinguling sisters have a lot of experience when it comes to Buddhist birthing. L, on photo right, is a midwife with 20 years experience, who delivered alll of the children in this picture, safely, at home, with minimal medical equipment or drugs. N, who stands in the middle of the back row, is holding one of her twins, while her sister, K (on the far left) holds the other twin, and stands in front of her own children, daughter Nyima and son Thayas.
