Birthing With Confidence in the GCC 2014 - Evaluation Report

Evaluation Report of BirthKuwait’s Conference
‘Birthingwith Confidence in the GCC 2014’

The Year 2014 marked to be a highly significant year for BirthKuwait as it successfully marked one of its key milestones - conducting the ‘Birthing with Confidence in the GCC’ which was the first conference to be held in this region of this kind.The exposure and growth which was established from this was remarkable because not only we had trainees from Kuwait, we had some coming in from neighboring GCC countries hence proclaiming the success of the mission of targeting the whole region as intended.

BirthKuwait managed to attain many loyal sponsors, some of which are continuing to collaborate with the branches and affiliates of BirthKuwait. And we have more sponsors and partners on board, post conference, all as a result to the success accomplished.
Most fruitful outcome of this conference was the establishment of Breastfeeding Support Program (BFSKW), the first of its kind in Kuwait. Offering monthly workshops in Arabic and English which have acclaimed great acceptance and seats get full weeks in advance. They have launched a Breastfeeding Support Hotline which provides daily support to moms via phone calls and messages as well as home visits.

Alongside this many private and public hospitals have expressed an interest in becoming more supportive of breastfeeding and invested in this goal by getting their staff trained  hence many nurses and doctors were trained by BK to become Doulas, Breastfeeding Counselors, Lamaze Childbirth Educators and Lactation Educators during our conference.
Following are the statistics of number of trained personals:
