In the La Ceiba Community Health Center, last month we give quick lessons on anatomy, breathing techniques, and breast feeding while women waite for their prenatal checkups each morning.  It has been nice to run into some of these same women in labor and delivery and witness them using the techniques we’ve shown and generally being more confident during their labor.  This is a true testament that a little information goes a long way.  This month our volunteers, Krista and Ashleigh, have been doing these daily charlas in the mornings and have reached many women.
