Dear Donors,

 

We would like to thank our donors for the generous support for the Project “Saving Mothers and Babies with Innovative Tools”. Under this, we are providing quality simulation-based healthcare training to service providers. The objective of these sessions is to improve maternal and child health by providing high impact, low-cost training tools for health workers and facilities.

The simulation-based training of innovative tools is essential, effective and required for saving lives at birth. High-quality simulation can substitute up to 50 % of clinical hours in pre-service nursing education.

Training was conducted for nursing students in Pushpanjali Nursing College, Agra, UP with your support. In the training, demonstrations on complex birth scenarios and newborn resuscitation were done. These demonstrations were done with the help of innovative tools like MamaNatalie, Neonatalie, Penguin Suction etc. A total of 35 students were trained.

 

Rani, a nursing student shared that this kind of training are very important for us as it provides real-time and hands-on training. It prepares us for handling the patients and difficult situations in advance.

 

Priya, another nursing student shared that we had not only learned but also applied the knowledge to handle complex baby delivery. It is a very effective way of learning.

 

There is a need to train and equip these Health service providers with these lifesaving tools so that improved care can be delivered and better health outcomes would lead.

Training with Mama Breast
Training with Mama Breast

In India, as per the National Family Health Survey(NFHS)-4 (2015-16), only 41.6% children under three years were breastfed within one hour of birth while only 54.9% children were exclusively breastfed until six months.

Breastfeeding is a cornerstone for child survival and health especially during early life because it provides essential irreplaceable nutrition for a child’s growth and development. It serves as a child’s first immunization - providing protection from common childhood illnesses, such as diarrhoea and pneumonia, few of the leading causes of under-five mortality in WHO’s South-East Asia Region. Breast milk promotes sensory and cognitive development and is an unequalled way of providing ideal food for the healthy growth and development of infants; it is also an integral part of the reproductive process with important implications for the health of mothers. Breastfeeding should be done in a right way.

To address this issue, HLFPPT organizes community sessions to promote breastfeeding at regular intervals. One of such session was organized in our Centre of Excellence (COE)- District Early Intervention Centre (DEIC) which provides healthcare services to babies and children aged 0-6 years of age. The information about Exclusive Breastfeeding, importance of first milk (Colostrum),Nutritional value of breastmilketcwas shared in the session. The session was conducted by giving demonstration of breastfeeding by using Mama Breast mannequin. Mama Breast is an excellent tool to use in the Essential Care for Every Baby training, Essential Care for Small Babies training and programs on Breastfeeding training, Kangaroo Mother Care Training and many more. Parents and Health Service Providers learnt about Breastfeeding with a wearable simulator that allows training for highly realistic simulation of breast feeding and breast milk expression.

This could not be possible without your support. Thank you for your generous support for generating awareness on Breastfeeding. It will save many lives. Many children will get proper nutrition through Breast milk. We had just shared the information to a few bunches of people. There are still thousands of mothers left who don’t know the importance of breastfeeding or doing it in a wrong way. We need your support for training them and saving many more lives.

Healthy Baby Samita
Healthy Baby Samita

Greetings from HLFPPT!

Every mother faces the problem of infant’s nose blockage due to overproduction of mucus. This blockage can interferes with his ability to comfortably eat and breathe at this time. Suctioning is necessary in this condition to help baby breathe and feed comfortably. There are certain solutions available medically but it is not accessible by the poor parents. HLFPPT is making this solutions available for the underserved population. Penguin Newborn suction is the innovative tool that helps clearing baby’s airway. This tool is easy to clean, have transparent body and attractive for the newborn.

Samita, born at PGI hospital Lucknow, was crying with a terrible cough and fever. Analysing the problem, doctors examined that the baby had too much mucus, which was making hard for her to eat and breathe. The parents were then advised to use the ‘Penguin Newborn Suction’ to remove fluids from a newborn’s nasal and oral cavities. After daily usage of the tool, parents found their baby girl smiling, giggling and laughing with a clear chest and having her proper meals for the day.

We are working continuously to support poor parents for accessing different innovative tools to make their baby happy and healthy.

Thank you so much for standing with HLFPPT. It could not be possible without your support. These Innovative tools are the need of the time. We are also incredibly grateful to you and to all our donors who continue to support the vital work we are doing. But we are falling short of funds to help more poor newborns. Thus, we seek your constant support.

We look forward to your increased generous contributions

Stay tuned to our GlobalGiving reports and social media through the year for the latest news.

We would like to thank our donors for the generous support for the Project of Saving Mothers and Babies with Innovative Tools. Under this we are providing quality simulation-based healthcare training to service providers. Also, innovative life-saving medical tools would be provided to facilities in low-resource settings to enhance their quality of service delivery.

These Lifesaving Medical tools can help to save babies in the first golden minute. When a baby is born, he or she should begin breathing within the “Golden Minute,” their first 60 seconds outside of the womb. Most babies do begin breathing on their own. 10 million babies worldwide, however, may need varying degree of assistance. Opportunity lost to provide needed assistance at this time would be a crucial impediment for saving these babies. It contributes to about 23% of neonatal deaths! In India there are one million neonatal deaths every year, representing about a quarter of all global neonatal deaths. Impact of birth asphyxia on childhood mortality is thus substantial. The mother who trusts that she will receive the best possible care expects that her providers have been fully prepared for the 1% risk.

 Many of these infants could be saved if a skilled health provider at neonatal resuscitation is present during labor and childbirth. Giving birth without a skilled birth attendant leaves both mothers and newborns without the specialized medical care that’s most critical when their lives are at greatest risk.

 Through our innovative, affordable solutions for newborn resuscitation, we are putting our efforts to train and equip birth attendants to become efficient lifesafers. These lifesafers would help babbies to breathe in the golden minute. It can reduce infant mortality in the country.

This Project will develop an efficient, cost effective and sustainable. This would be a key resource for improving neonatal resuscitation practices in the country.

We are grateful to all our donors who supported in the vital work we are doing. As since last quarter, we are running short of funds, we need your support to save babies at the golden minute.

Dear HLFPPT Supporters,

Greetings!

We would like to thank you for all your support. We value the support that you have given us through your generous donations for Saving Mothers and Babies with Innovative Tools in India.

HLFPPT is working hard continuously to improve the quality of care by enhancing healthcare provider skills through simulation-based trainings and to strengthen facilities with life-saving tools in India. So that healthcare providers and facilities are better trained and equipped to deliver quality care that could result in better survival outcomes for both mothers and newborns.

We would like to share the story of one such innovative tool which is aiding skills of healthcare service provider at MGHN Shree Krishna Hospital, NOIDA, Uttar Pradesh in this report. MGHN (Merrygold network) is a unique social franchising program for providing high quality maternal and child health services at affordable prices.

Medical and Paramedical staff of the hospital has been capacitated to deliver quality care by using the innovative tools- MamaNatalie and Neonatalie which have been used for demonstrating very compelling simulations of normal to more complex birthing scenarios.

Dr. Pratibha shares her experience -“MamaNatalie can be used for showing birthing stimulation. It is better designed and demonstrate the natural processes of labor pain. It prepares the team for worst case scenarios. As time goes on, we tend to forget small little things but these trainings with innovative tools assists healthcare providers to reinvigorate and strengthen the knowledge as required”.

Thank you so much for standing with HLFPPT. It could not be possible without your support. These Innovative tools are the need of the time. We are also incredibly grateful to you and to all our donors who continue to support the vital work we are doing. But we are falling short of funds to capacitate more Healthcare Providers since last quarter. Thus, we seek your constant support.

We look forward to your increased generous contributions!
