Labour can be a very frightening experience for women, especially first births. In addition, women will experience physical sensations ranging from discomfort to severe pain. Helping the woman to be as relaxed as possible and aware of her situation can help minimize the physical pain and emotional distress of labour and birth. Women can be helped with this by receiving adequate care, timely information, comfort, support and reassurance during labour and birth. It is also important to maintain respect and courtesy whenever possible by explaining what you are going to do and why, and by being courteous to her and her family. It is equally important to maintain respect for privacy throughout the birth, by keeping the woman covered as much as possible for all procedures.
Nacer con Cariño Law moves forward on its path to settle a historic debt to mothers and their babies
Through the Nacer con Cariño Law for a Respectful Childbirth and Loving and Sensitive Care for the Newborn, the Government, under the vision of the First Lady, Gabriela de Bukele, is settling a historical debt with Salvadoran society, especially with future generations.
This law has four fundamental principles: the supremacy of the dignity of the mother and the unborn baby; the best interest in the baby’s development; pro-education for the mother and the companion and education for health personnel in the preconception, prenatal and delivery; and integrity.
With the birth of this law, for the first time the country has specialized training in maternal and child health professionals. Through this training, new specialties such as change managers, prenatal educators, breastfeeding advisors, maternal and child health promoters and nurse doulas have been established.
For the first time, the country also has a National Prenatal Education Program. Sessions in which the mother and her companion learn about nutrition, physical changes, baby growth and bonding, comforting techniques for labor, birthing postures, the role of the companion during childbirth and breastfeeding and care for the baby.
Another step on the road to paying off this debt is the intervention in 100 % of the maternity wards in El Salvador. Historically, these facilities were in deplorable conditions for the care of mothers and their children.
The vice-president of the Legislative Assembly, Suecy Callejas, assured this morning that the Nacer con cariño law is a regulation that applies to both public and private hospitals.
The Nacer con cariño law seeks to make the change of vision mandatory, both in public and private hospitals.
International organizations also support the Nacer con Cariño law PAHO, UNICEF, UNFPA and UNDP expressed their recognition and support for the implementation of the law during the installation of the situation room.

The PAHO representative, Giovanni Escalante, pointed out that the implementation of the regulation will generate lessons learned that will strengthen the aspects of perinatal maternal care
One of the most important steps for the implementation of the referred law was announced by the First Lady and is the construction of the Nacer con Cariño Maternity Center “El Nido”. This center will be the reference for the implementation of the new model of maternal and child care.
It will serve as a training center for health personnel from all over the country and will provide in one place the services and care that mothers and their babies need.

Assembly approves law to guarantee care for mothers during pregnancy and birth of their children
The First Lady of the Republic, Gabriela de Bukele, announced the construction of the new maternity center Nacer con Cariño “El Nido”, which will be a reference in the implementation of the new model of maternal and child care and the first in the region.
De Bukele explained that it began with a diagnosis of the maternal and child area of the public health system. “We realized that the situation was more alarming than we thought. Pregnancy was considered a disease with high rates of cesarean sections and vaginal tactos every 15 minutes, moms isolated and unaccompanied by someone they trusted. Babies were separated from their mothers and health personnel were overworked,” she said.
She said that with the diagnosis they began to work together with health institutions, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and international experts on a work plan for respectful childbirth.
“We decided to turn this work plan into law because it was important that it be implemented in the public and private system, that it be mandatory and that it have a budget to be executed. In July 2021, we submitted the draft bill to the Legislative Assembly…. A month later, with 79 votes, the deputies approved the Nacer con Cariño Law”, she explained.
The first lady assured that the law aims to implement a new model of maternal and child care that puts the mother and the baby at the center, inspiring health professionals to rediscover their vocation and thus achieve a positive birth experience and a loving and sensitive care for the newborn.
At the Nacer con Cariño “El Nido” maternity center, each mother will have welcome kits with personal hygiene items, she announced.
