  • Breastfeeding Videos
    • Of all preventive interventions, breastfeeding has the greatest potential impact on child survival, yet only 40% of babies in the developing world are exclusively breastfed. Virtually every mother can breastfeed, if given appropriate support, advice, and encouragement, as well as practical assistance to resolve any problems. Our Breastfeeding Series “shows and tells” this important information to help health workers and mothers achieve greater breastfeeding success worldwide. The videos follow current breastfeeding standards, were carefully reviewed by our team of lactation content experts, and field tested in several locations in the developing world. There is a set of videos for health workers and a companion set adapted for mothers.
  • Childbirth Videos
    • The Childbirth Series is designed to improve the quality of care during childbirth and protect the lives of birthing women. Ten million women suffer injury, infection, or disease in childbirth each year, and 300,000 of these woman die. The series features more than 10 videos surrounding normal birth that demonstrate best-practice care during labor, birth, and immediate postpartum. They showcase a midwifery approach to care with a birth attendant working solo, the norm in small facilities throughout much of the developing world. Our videos include the faces of birthing women to model the rapport between the birth attendant and the woman. This interaction is an important feature of our films which aim to teach humanistic care for birthing women.
