New parents have lots of questions (especially once they leave your care), and your staff needs a way to ensure that everyone gets the same evidence-based information. This book + web app allows you to provide education in multiple formats that starts in the hospital and continues at home—without parents getting caught in the “rabbit hole” of the internet. When you give families an Understanding Postpartum Health & Baby Care postpartum discharge education book, you also provide access to a selection of essential discharge teaching videos they get to easily by scanning a code with their phone, along with a free companion web app that works on any type of mobile device or computer.
Formerly Understanding Mother & Baby Care, this newly revamped guide was developed with guidance from a team of maternal healthcare professionals and educators to include the most important postpartum health, baby care, and breastfeeding topics.
