Addressing healthcare systems’ need to support new parents with engaging patient education, Milner-Fenwick a division of The Wellness Network has released a new patient education video series to help support moms and babies during their time of great change. This HealthClips video series contains 21 programs each averaging about 3-4 minutes. It gives new moms and dads practical, helpful information to make the transition in their lives with a newborn a little easier.
One of the key goals for producing this series was to make it “Baby-friendly,” an initiative to enable mothers to breastfeed babies for the best start in life.* In addition, the videos reflect the latest recommendations in newborn care including the newest guidelines on crib and car safety, as well as new breastfeeding hold positions and skin-to-skin contact goals.
Serving as a key resource for healthcare teams, these programs can help decrease the rate of postpartum complication hospitalizations by informing mothers to know what to look for and who to call.
[su_quote]Richard Milner, CEO of Milner-Fenwick a division of The Wellness Network, sees the series playing an important role for hospitals: “You want a young family’s first experience with your hospital system to be a good one. With shorter hospital stays, it is more important than ever for hospitals to provide necessary care information in the hospital and beyond. Without this information, a great hospital birthing experience can be quickly forgotten in the stress and strain of caring for a newborn and postpartum mom.”[/su_quote]
Parents can view these videos wherever they are via the Internet. The Wellness Network offers an easy solution for home access via HealthClips® WebExpress, a turn-key and branded website for your organization. The New Mom – New Baby WebExpress Package enables home viewing on any device, and helps with compliance for follow-up appointments for babies and parents.
