In April, our film team launched our new video series on childbirth with a film shoot at the United Mission Hospital in Tansen, Nepal. We were awarded a significant grant from The Price Family Foundation to produce this series, which will demonstrate best-practice care from labor through birth and the immediate post-partum period. The childbirth series is an excellent complement to our newborn care series, now at 20 videos with more on the way.

We have added four more videos on newborn care best practices to our video library: Skin Infection, The Hot Baby, Breast Engorgement, and Preparing the Birth Room. This expands our newborn care library to a total of 20 videos, more than half of the 36 films planned for this series.
We have just released six new videos on newborn care best practices: Sepsis, The Home Visit, Giving an Intradermal Injection, Jaundice, The Cold Baby, and Thrush. The videos include footage from our most recent film shoot in Nagpur, India—where we collaborated with the Lata Medical Research Foundation—as well as from our previous trip to Nigeria. Content is based on international standards of care, and has been reviewed by global medical experts and field-tested among frontline health workers in developing countries. The videos are free to download for offline use. Four more videos will be coming soon—stay tuned!
