II Symposium on Pregnancy

HPA Magazine 8


The success of the 1st event was repeated this year. With attendance – we could not accept all of the enrolments – we organised the II Symposium on Pregnancy, which hopes to be the the national touchstone for this type of events.
Therefore, once again, between parents and babies who are coming (some meanwhile have already arrived), sponsors and organisation, we numbered around 200.


The commitment and professionalism of all who took place contributed towards these amazing moments.
Gustavo Santos was once again the “star of the show” and, with his charm and enthusiasm, captivated the whole audience. He left us to reflect on how we can change our lives, in the sense of becoming free and more inspired, subjects that dominate his second book, and then held an autograph session.
As to the more didactic topics, there was plenty of opportunity to learn: Stem Cells (Bebé Vida Laboratory); Labour (Nurse Patrícia Sancho and Dr Oriana Leça); Delivery Plan (Nurse Tito Félix); Foetal Movements (Dr Ivone Lobo and Nurse Alain Delgado) and Sleep during Pregnancy (Dr Teresa Sousa).
The presents and pampering for the mothers and babies were as generous as ever: 4D sonograms (during the event and later in the Maternity Services of Gambelas), gifts of childbirth classes, stem cell kits and a photography session.
During the event, our partners distributed various presents that delighted the future mothers. 
Congratulations to our professionals.
