On the 23rd September 2016, over 200 doctors, nurses, medical students and other hospital professionals gathered in the auditorium of the National Medical School. Experts spoke about the importance of ‘Parto Respetado’ – respectful birth, and ways in which this can be implemented clinically. Generously supported by the German Embassy and the medical board of Honduras, this was a special day for Silvia and Dar A Luz Honduras, and the culmination of months of hard work. Afterwards the National press were keen to hear from Silvia and other experts and everyone enjoyed delicious handmade cupcakes made especially for the occasion by Gicel Montoya. It was a highly successful conference as the photos show!
