Dar a Luz has developed several lectures, seminars and workshops in coordination with local institutions for hospitals, universities and nursing schools in Honduras.
Various topics covered include eliminating the use of fundal pressure, avoiding episiotomy, the protection of the perineum, and compassionate care.
Therefore we have developed a strategy for getting the best long-term outcomes.
Our midwives and other healthcare professional volunteers work alongside local staff, to reinforce and demonstrate good practice, clinical skills and to model compassionate care.
Besides to build up good relationships with the local staff, one of our main focuses is always to demonstrate empathy, compassion and respect towards the childbearing women.
