Maternal and Newborn Care

The first days for a newborn are the foundation for the rest of their lives, while pregnancy, childbirth and parenting are profound experiences for mothers and families.

Our expansive maternal and neonatal training curriculum uses behavior change education to help new parents navigate this journey by providing them with critical information on preventive health practices and what to expect. 

The program is presently being implemented in 109 hospitals in India by our local partners, in collaboration with the state governments of Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Maharashtra and Karnataka.
