Workshop on Upright Birth

Workshop group – interns, residents, teaching doctors, and nurses!

In February, Dar a Luz Honduras held a week-long training workshop on upright birth with a group of resident doctors, intern doctors, nurses and teaching doctors, as a part of a long-term training goal for the hospital. During the workshop, participants learned about the benefits of upright birth positions, how to protect the perineum and how to support the mother and new-born in an upright birth. Theses workshop will be repeated to train as many staff as possible to know how to attend upright births. Excitingly, on our last day of the workshop the hospital saw its first birth in the squatting position using our new multi-position chairs.
