  4. Full length Somali version of How to Look After a Newborn

    The primary intended audiences of this film are communities and birth attendants; it can be used by activists, community health workers, nurses and midwives who run community education programmes. Two shorter versions of this film focussing on routine care of a newborn and what to do when a newborn is not breathing are also available on this channel.

    This film teaches the key steps to follow immediately after the delivery of a newborn in case it could not take place at a health centre. It insists on the importance of drying the baby and of early breastfeeding and teaches the correct way of cutting the cord in order to avoid infection.
    It also teaches what to do when a newborn is not breathing, including putting the baby’s head in the neutral position and performing mouth-to-mouth.

    It encourages the immediate referral of the newborn to a health centre.

    Translation thanks to Aidarus Khalif and Fouzia Ismail and Abdirahman Dahir Aden at the Somaliland Nursing and Midwifery Association (SLNMA)
