Some one million newborns die each year from the inability to breathe at birth. The INMED Professional  Certificate Course in Helping Babies Breathe (HBB Master Trainer Course, 2nd Edition) is an evidence-based educational program to prepare learners to teach basic neonatal resuscitation techniques in low-resource locations to benefit midwives, mid-level providers, and traditional birth attendants. HBB can also be effectively combined with other elements of the Helping Babies Survive series, including Essential Care for Every Baby and Essential Care for Small Babies (ECEB-ECSB). Helping Babies Breathe is an initiative of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), US Agency for International Development (USAID), Saving Newborn Lives, and the National Institute of Child Health and Development.

 

This is a hybrid learning experience that combines online preparation in Maternal-Newborn Health with a one-day in-classroom workshop to equip participants with basic newborn resuscitation skills, emphasizing respiratory support, as well as coaching to partner with local health leaders to transfer these skills to birth attendants in resource limited settings.
