Thanks to the invaluable support and effort of Elizabeth Noble, author and educator all of her life for pregnant women, Barbara Harper contacted us and we had the wonderful opportunity to have her between us.
Without a doubt it was an unforgettable visit in which we all learned plenty. It was a unique and wonderful week in our lives.
The first two to three days she was with us in Panama city and then we traveled to the Chiriqui Province located to the west of our country.
On Tuesday April 23rd it was our meeting with the pregnant women, mothers and familiars. To the event assisted university students, doctors, representatives of the birth inscription service of our country, journalists and many more.
Briana and Lidia, two of our wonderful mothers, narrated their water birth experience. It was exciting!!
Then Barbara marveled us with her exposure of almost three hours. Nobody moved from their seat. It was the mothers and fathers in their world showing their infinite human and maternal spirit, proudly.
Graciela and I were privileged witnesses of the event.
Next day Barbara was interviewed by the magazine Ellas. Then we shared in the Miraflores restaurant beside our Panama Canal and then we visited Misty’s house whose family just had a water birth.
The teachings and wisdom of Barbara, her deep love is going to be kept engraved forever in our minds and hearts.
