Building Relationships

by Ashleigh Menzies 

Yesterday we held our monthly mountain midwife meeting in Yarucca. Silvia invited two nurses Alma Castillo and Claudia Lozano from the public hospital in La Ceiba, which showed an interest to volunteer with the project. They led a class on measuring fundal height to assess fetal development and improve prenatal care.

Among the midwives, there is such a wealth of knowledge and it is wonderful to have a forum in which they can share this knowledge. It was a great experience to have local nurses from the public hospital working with these rural midwives, who are often undervalued.  We look forward to having them join us again and continuing to build a strong relationship between these communities.  Thank you Alma and Claudia!
