We have eight new videos available on postpartum hemorrhage. The footage was shot in maternities in Nepal, Indonesia, Rwanda, and Ghana. We’ve included several animations to unpack skills and “make visible” the action going on inside the body.
This collection of videos aims to help teach health workers the skills they need to care for women who are bleeding after birth. Two videos cover recognition and management of bleeding problems (Bleeding After Birth and Managing Severe Bleeding After Birth). Six videos provide more detailed instruction on procedures and skills to manage postpartum hemorrhage (Manual Removal of the Placenta, Uterine Balloon Tamponade, Cervical Tears, Uterine Compression, Aortic Compression, and Using an Anti-Shock Garment).
The content of the videos complements the learning module Helping Mothers Survive: Bleeding after Birth Complete, which was developed by Jhpiego and endorsed by ICM, FIGO, UNFPA, ICN, and AAP. The videos are organized so that they can be easily accessed and used as a complementary tool by both HMS BABC module instructors and learners.
The videos are available in English, French, and Spanish. We are grateful to Latter-day Saint Charities (LDSC) for the funding that made these videos possible, as well as to our individual and family donors.
