Mamatoto celebrates 10 years of water births in the Caribbean

From Trinidad Express

Trinidad and Tobago is the home of the first water birth facility in the Caribbean. The midwives at Mamatoto Resource and Birth Centre have facilitated many births with the first being a water birth at their premises in Belmont ten years ago in January 2008. The founders were determined to create a gentle, safe, natural and more family-focussed birth environment for women in their community. And so Mamatoto (Swahili for mother-baby) was born.

This award-winning NGO has led the way, offering a new birth environment in Trinidad and Tobago for women experiencing low-risk pregnancies. Although birth has become very medicalised in many developed countries, worldwide research shows that natural birthing methods (including water births) with midwives using non-pharmacological techniques has the best outcomes for both mother and baby.

Cayman Islands Health Services Authority (HSA) and the Public Health Department report 60 cases of hand, foot and mouth disease

It has been revealed there is 60 cases of hand, foot and mouth disease on Grand Cayman.

The Cayman Islands Health Services Authority (HSA) and the Public Health Department are working together to closely monitor and mitigate against the disease.

The virus is very contagious and parents whose children are infected must keep them at home to reduce further spread of the disease. Only until blisters have dried up, there are no new blisters and no fever for at least 24 hours may children return to school.

Early symptoms may include fever and a sore throat. Painful blisters similar to cold sores can show up on the inside of your child’s mouth or on his tongue.

The child might get a rash on the palms of his hands or the soles of his feet a day or two after the first symptoms appear. This rash may turn into blisters. Flat spots or sores may pop up on the knees, elbows, or buttocks. The child could have all of these symptoms, or only one or two.

Mouth sores can make it hurt to swallow, so be sure your child gets enough water and calories.
