Improving Perinatal Care in Barbados & the Eastern Caribbean
It was fabulous to have all of our colleagues from the region in one place. Whilst we have met each other at various times, I think it was a great idea for us to come together at the same time to discuss shared concerns unique to our region, and to explore creative ways of partnering to overcome them. I am grateful to have participated.

The conference highlighted the strong and weak points of perinatal care in our region, and showed how we can collaborate to achieve best practices. Listening to countries’ experiences gave us an idea of who we are and where we need to be. The topics will definitely assist us in creating protocols to improve perinatal care in our NICU.

The conference was timely and fruitful. It generated comradery and gave the opportunity to identify with the other participants, the struggles and challenges in their country. I was able to see that we all have similarities and if we work together much can be achieved.
