A warm thank you goes out to Rhonda Lee Grantham.
Rhonda is an experienced homebirth and hospital midwife and doula in Olympia, Washington. (Wild Rose Midwifery).
Having a lot of international experience, she deeply understands the role of a doula and midwife in a country like Honduras.
During her stay in Honduras, Rhonda volunteered as a Doula in 3 different hospitals throughout the country. Her midwife skills were put to use in San Ignacio during a 5 day doula and midwife training seminar, where together with Silvia, Rhonda prepared the curriculim. This was the first ever intense training seminar facilitated by Dar a Luz. Rhonda also hold a one day midwife seminar in the mountains of La Ceiba. Her talents also extended into the office, where she was a great help with administration and public relations for Dar a Luz.
Rhonda is an open minded midwife. Her empathy, compassion and intuition was invaluable.
