Event description


As an international program of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), Helping Babies Breathe trains birth attendants in resource-limited settings to provide neonatal resuscitation techniques that can save the lives of babies who need help breathing at birth.

Helping Babies Breathe teaches the initial steps of neonatal resuscitation to be accomplished within The Golden Minute to save lives and give a much better start to many babies who struggle to breathe at birth. HBB neonatal resuscitation techniques that have been shown to reduce neonatal mortality by up to 47% and fresh stillbirths by 24%.

This one-day intensive workshop trains healthcare providers to facilitate Helping Babies Breathe training abroad. Those currently involved in international health work or anticipating involvement in the foreseeable future should attend.

Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) training versus Helping Babies Breathe (HBB) training

The HBB curriculum was designed to specifically meet the needs of patients and caregivers in resource limited environments; therefore, NRP certification it in itself does not qualify a person for HBB training. Those with a background in NRP may find that this background will give you an interesting perspective on HBB, however it should be noted that NRP training should not be considered an acceptable substitution in lieu of HBB training.
