Publishers of "Where There Is No Doctor" launch mobile app
From the publishers of "Where There Is No Doctor," the Safe Pregnancy and Birth App is the only comprehensive app on pregnancy and birth developed specifically for low-resource settings. Life-saving information is presented in clear, accessible language rich with illustrations, and an intuitive and friendly navigation—perfect for working with community health workers or midwives with varied literacy levels.
The app is available for free for Android or iPhone, and once downloaded, this vital material can be accessed in the most remote communities, with no internet connection required.
Safe Pregnancy and Birth contains a wealth of information on:
*how to stay healthy during pregnancy
*how to recognize danger signs during pregnancy, birth, and after birth
*what to do when a danger sign arises
*when to refer a woman to emergency care
Over 20 “How to…” instructions for community health worker skills provide step-by-step explanations such as “How to take blood pressure,” “How to treat someone in shock,” “How to stop bleeding,” etc.
In the trademark Hesperian Health Guides’ style, the app demystifies health information, and is presented in a warm, conversational tone.
