I feel very honored to be able to explain to you some of the activities that we carry out in the Department of Gynecology. Our concern for women’s health includes many different aspects, such as early recognition and treatment of cancer, assisting couples who cannot have children, offering fertility treatments, following pregnancies closely and helping mothers when giving birth.
This department in the University of Navarra Hospital has a clear sense of mission in topics related to life. We try to be a beacon of light for the Christian meaning of sexuality and respect for life.
Recently the Prelate has asked the people in Opus Dei to foster personal initiatives that give witness to a Christian vision in daily life. In my case, as a medical professional, I am collaborating in a project to provide help to expectant mothers whose children may live for only a very short time. In reality, it is an initiative for perinatal palliative care.
