[Updated 7 April 2021 with new factual videos about the importance of antenatal and postnatal checkups, the importance of delivery at a birth facility, what services are available, and the benefits of delivering at the health facility.]
BBC Media Action has developed a series of multimedia products to assist in communicating about health issues in pregnancy. The materials cover self-care advice as well as information about when health services should be accessed, and how.
Materials are primarily designed for use in information hubs or within community spaces and listening groups, but could also be used by agency field staff, volunteers and others working directly with communities. For those community members with mobile phones, the content could be shared directly with them for future reference, using Bluetooth, SD card or other transfer methods.
