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.
