We have three new teaching videos available for skilled birth attendants on topics around the time of birth. The videos are related to normal birth and cover the following:
-Respectful Care During Labor and Birth: this video shows what respectful care means in practice.
-Positions for Birth: this video shows a birth attendant how to assist a woman to birth in a variety of positions to give them choices, help the natural process of birth and support a woman's pushing efforts.
-Postnatal Care of Mother and Baby: this video provides key points to cover with a mother and her family after birth, including rest and good nutrition, family planning, danger signs in mothers and babies, and care of the newborn.
The videos are available on our website ( www.globalhealthmedia.org/videos/childbirth) in English, French and Spanish. We are happy to collaborate If you would like to translate and narrate the videos in your local language. Please get in touch!
