A newborn who doesn’t breathe at birth needs help immediately. Our new video uses live footage to show the basic steps of newborn resuscitation using the internationally renowned Helping Babies Breathe guidelines.

Training birth attendants in neonatal resuscitation is critical to helping save the one million babies who die each year from birth asphyxia (WHO). Helping Babies Breathe is an evidence-based hands-on training program developed for low-resource settings by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

A tremendous amount of time and effort has gone on “behind the scenes” to find optimal clinical sites and ensure the accuracy and authenticity of our resuscitation videos. We are grateful to LDS Charities and our individual and family donors for their generous funding, and to numerous people from all over the world who have given their time and expertise so generously to make these videos a reality.
