TBA Skills Pregnancy
The Xhosa ‘TBA Skills Pregnancy’ DVD lesson is aimed at traditional birth attendants and teaches them how they can help a mother through pregnancy to ensure a healthy birth.
The DVD teaches about healthy eating which can help prevent disease and keep the pregnant mother’s energy levels up.
It is also important that pregnant women rest during the day and do not take on too much hard manual labour.
The lesson teaches how to recognise signs of infections or illness and what actions to take to ensure the mother gets the medical help that is needed.
Traditional birth attendants play an important role in the care of pregnant women so it is important they know how to care for them and advise them.
This DVD is part of a series of educational lessons in Xhosa entitled Mother and Baby.
