How to Care for a newborn (full length)

This film teaches the key steps to follow immediately after the delivery of a newborn in case it could not take place at a health centre. It insists on the importance of drying the baby and of early breastfeeding and teaches the correct way of cutting the cord in order to avoid infection. It also explains what to do if the newborn is not breathing.

So many deaths can be prevented by teaching simple procedures such as basic hygiene, preventing deaths from sepsis and tetanus, or knowing & recognising the importance of timely referral.
