We at RDO Medical were recently invited to 'National Midwives Day" in Girona, Spain. It was a great sunny day with a festive atmosphere where midwives from all over the country were present to exchange ideas, meet their colleagues, share experiences, and enjoy a glass or two of Cava!
RDO Medical presented our fantastic range of products that really meet the needs of midwives and their clients.
We found that generally, midwives who are also specialists in contraception and post natal contraception, are on the look out for reliable yet non-hormonal birth control options, especially for breast feeding mothers.
It makes sense then that so many midwives were enthusiastic about the FemCap. They saw it as the perfect solution to offer to breast feeding mothers, because it is a non-hormonal barrier but does not interefer wit hthe natural sensation and pleasure the way condoms can,
Many women find that they feel better, are free of annoying side effects, and are generally more in-sync with their bodies after they have been hormone free for their entire pregnancies. Once post- natal fertility returns, who wants to go back to hormonal contraception anyway? The Cyclotest was seen as the best way to keep a women who desires it hormone free.
A simple daily temperature reading and maybe a button press when the highly fertile cervical mucus arrives is enough to offer 99% contraceptive reliability. Since the Sympto-Thermal method was agreed on as the chosen Natural Family Planning method by those in attendance, the Cyclotest, which is the only Sympto-Thermal monitor on the market, was the star of the show.
Any midwife who does home births has gotten thier fare share of 4am calls when an expectent mother is not sure if her waters have broken. The Vision Amniotic Leak Detecting Pads were met with great realif as the Midwives now have a simple solution to offer clarity in those situations. Just have the client put on the pad, wait for a bit of time, and check the color indicator. It will clearly show if its party time, or if the wait is not quite over yet.
Amongst our range of other products presented which include the French Letter Vegan Condoms, YES organic lubricants, and the newly launched FemmyCycle menstrual cup, which actually caused a big buzz.
It just so happens a lot of the midwives in attendance are already big fans of the Mooncup. As trained medical professionals these ladies easily saw the massive design and construction advantage of the FemmyCycle when placed along side a Mooncup. Medical grade silicone, the non-spill lip/neck and the smoothness for easier cleaning made it evident at a glance that the FemmyCycle is the new generation of menstrual cup.
Our day at the confrence was not all work and no play!
An amazing lunch was enjoyed by all in truly breathtaking surroundings, we were able to expand our networking across many great new professionals and meet again with those from previous training sessions that we had delivered. We managed to get signed copies of Silvia de Bejar's new book, Deseo, all still having time to hare our product knowledge with all those in attendance.
All of the products which we presented are of course available through our website, EthicalFamilyPlanning.com.
We'd like to say a big thank you to the Midwives Assosiation for being invited to your wonderful conference, and give a big virtual hug to all those great, welcoming people we met.
