Helpmum E-learning platform

This is a platform containing pre-recorded videos for community birth attendants in their indigenous language. This platform gives them easy access to all our trainings from the comfort of their homes. Topics such as How to use the mucous extractor, how to prevent post-partum hemorrhage and many more are available on the platform.

Background

Also the deaths of newborn babies in Nigeria represent a quarter of the total number of deaths of children under-five. The majority of these occur within the first week of life, mainly due to complications during pregnancy and delivery reflecting the intimate link between newborn survival and the quality of maternal care. Of Course these deaths are preventable.

According to UNICEF “Every single day, Nigeria loses about 2,300 children under five and 145 women of childbearing age. This makes the country the second largest contributor to the under–five and maternal mortality rate in the world.” Every 10 minutes, one woman dies on account of pregnancy or childbirth in Nigeria..

Women who live in rural, underserved and deprived communities in Nigeria do not have access to safe and hygienic delivery due to lack of public health facilities, lack of clean birth kits and lack of adequate health information.  These women do not present their children for immunization at appropriate times thereby resulting in the death of these children before they reach the age of 4
