SIX SIMPLE SUPPLIES SAVE LIVES.
The birthing kit holds supplies to meet the seven basic requirements for a clean birth and potentially saves the life of a mother and baby in a rural or remote community.
Clean birth site - A plastic sheet prevents mother & baby coming into contact with the floor or ground.
Clean hands - Soap and gloves prevent the birth attendant transmitting germs to the mother and baby.
Clean eyes - Gauze is used to wipe away birth canal secretions from the eyes, which reduces the risk of eye infection.
Clean umbilical cord - Using a sterile scalpel blade and clean ties reduces the risk of infection.
Clean cut - The sterile scalpel blade provides a clean cut of the umbilical cord and reduces incidents of infection caused by using other implements.
Clean ties - Clean ties prevent bleeding from the umbilical cord.
Clean perineum - Gauze is used to wipe away birth secretions from the mothers perineum.
