Birth ball- still something new in Honduras

by Kate Furbush

I had my first experience with using the birth ball the other day in the hospital and I was really impressed with how well it worked. Not only was it my first experience, but also a first time for many doctors and nurses. Birth balls are not commonly used during labor in Honduras, and in the hospital women are usually constrained to laying down all through labor. The young women who used it was very appreciative of the opportunity to move around and change positions. It’s wonderful that this Dar a Luz donation is available to use now in the hospital!
