November 4 2016

On November 4th a small intimate group of nursing instructors participated in a seminar as part of our El Parto Respetado y Parto Humanizado campaign. It was a great morning with lots of discussion. It was wonderful to hear these woman open up about their experiences working in the hospitals here.  Silvia also demonstrated the many uses of a birthing ball in labour and many positions women can try in the vertical position to alleviate discomfort during labour. As always Dar a Luz provided some delicious snacks for everyone.

Thank you to the Medical School for providing lunch and for all those who came out and participated!
