To be fair it's not like it makes much difference if they are in a box or a glass baking dish like they do over here.
Depends on the temperature in the hospital, I guess...but the insulation in the boxes/baskets would of course be rather poor. Being close to the floor puts them at greater risk to harm and germs, too. Beyond these concerns, though, you're right...it's not like they care.

I think they really only need fancy care if there's actually a problem, don't they? I mean, whilst this line of thinking does open up a can of worms, humans survived being born without even having towels and plastic baskets for a few hundred thousand years.

True but i doubt those boxes are sanitary enough, those women on the floor are the true teagedy, imagine after hours of labor having to rest there :(
Yeah, they just put the babys there too:

It's around 40ºC for like 90% of the year in Honduras

It's Honduras. It's always hot. If it's anything like the other countries I have been to in Central and South America, I doubt it is air conditioned.
