Helping Mothers Survive: Bleeding after Birth Complete (HMS BABC)

Bleeding after Birth Complete (BABC) is a two-day learning module designed to reduce maternal deaths caused by post-partum hemorrhage. The module builds capacity of the entire team of providers who give care for women and newborns at birth. With BABC, skills are built around communication and teamwork, active management of the third stage of labor, early detection and management of PPH. Skills include management of shock, uterine balloon tamponade, manual removal of placenta, repair of cervical lacerations, and use of the non-pneumatic anti-shock garment. The materials include a Flipbook, Provider’s Guide, and two Action Plans, as well as a folder of necessary supplemental materials that are critical components for success. BAB Complete is endorsed by ICM, FIGO, UNFPA, ICN, and AAP.
