Safe Birth Kit with Decision Making Guide

The Safe Birth Kit or clean birth kit prevents infection during childbirth. Contents include:

  • Cleaning supplies including soap and alcohol wipes
  • Obstetric tools including blade, clamps, and drape
  • Instructions for kit use and decision-making around danger signs

THE PROBLEM

Infection is one of the leading causes of maternal mortality. It has been estimated that over 10% of maternal deaths globally can be attributed to obstetric infections, with the largest toll in low- and middle-income countries. Maternal deaths due to infection occur predominantly through maternal sepsis, which is life-threatening organ dysfunction due to maternal infection. These deaths can be eliminated with good hygienic practices, which requires the availability of obstetric tools and cleaning supplies to keep the field sterile.

THE SOLUTION

The Safe Birth Kit prevents infection during childbirth.  The kit contains a larger-than-usual range of everyday items like soap to cleanse the birth mothers' perineum, a drape to provide a clean surface for delivery, gloves for the birth attendant, a razor blade to cut the umbilical cord and two cord clamps for the umbilical cord. Alcohol wipes (soon to be replaced with chlorhexidine) for cord care in the 24 hours after the birth as well as a newborn hat and blanket round out this complete kit. 

The most innovative component of the kit is the pictorial instructions for use of the kit and decision-making around danger signs. The pictorial instructions have been tested, refined, and re-tested to optimize universal comprehension of the key messages regarding infection prevention and referral during danger signs.

The full contents of the Safe Birth Kit include the following:

  • Pictorial Guide for kit use and decision making around danger signs
  • Gloves
  • Soap
  • Purell
  • Razor to cut the cord
  • Alcohol wipes for the cord
  • Drape for a clean surface
  • 2 cord clamps
  • Newborn hat for warming
  • Newborn blanket for warming
