We attended a 3 day training program on the first 1,000 days. During this program, we watched videos on how to breastfeed, breastfeeding techniques etc. All these videos are easy to understand. Graphics have been used in these tutorials which makes the explanation simpler. Apart from these, we learnt many new things like Kangaroo mother care which we have never heard about during our previous trainings.
We will share this knowledge with our students and society through these videos.Thank you
Today, we watched videos on breast crawl, how to breastfeed, various breastfeeding techniques and powder recipes. These videos are good, and we will surely use them in our training.
Also, we as Nursing tutors learnt many new things through these videos, and these videos will be beneficial to our ANM workers (Auxiliary nurse midwife)
We showed these videos to all the Mothers. For them, the videos were easy to understand and they learnt many new things such as -
how to hold the baby,
nutritious powders etc
Only listening to our lecture was not sufficient for pregnant women with no experience of breastfeeding.
These videos are not boring but very helpful as now they can watch all those things along with the audio.
As Asha worker, I have learnt many new things.
After 10-12 yrs of experience, I and my colleagues have learnt a lot from these videos. Earlier we were facing problems while explaining the details to the Mothers. Now these videos will help us to make Mothers understand about correct practices. They can see and practice themselves through these videos.
Many times mothers don't listen or get bored or simply ignore our lecture. So now we just show these videos to them and we have observed that their level of understanding and concentration has improved by watching these videos. Now they know, how to hold the baby correctly while breastfeeding, how to make drumstick leaves powder and importance of these powders. They regularly make these powders for their babies. Also all the mother wants us to show these videos several times during our visit.
Asha workers go house to house to counsel new mothers/pregnant women about correct nutrition practices. Sometimes they unknowingly forget a few important things to tell the mother and this lack of information could lead to further damage. In such cases, these videos help. The videos contain detailed information about breastfeeding so it reduces our efforts. Now we just show the Mothers the videos on Aakash tablets and they get sufficient information and practical knowledge.
