Understanding Postpartum Health & Baby Care: Your Guide to the 4th Trimester Video Program

Clear visuals and flexible playlist features allow you to discharge parents with confidence.



InJoy’s all-new Understanding Postpartum Health & Baby Care program helps you present the most current need-to-know discharge information in a relatable way that appeals to today’s parents. Throughout the program, brief interviews from a diverse group of parents engage viewers through storytelling, and the short clips are perfect to keep the attention of tired new parents in the days after birth. After viewing, your patients will walk away with clear examples of how to care for themself and their baby, along with reassurance that the ups and downs of the 4th trimester are normal and expected.

Playlist features allow for flexible teaching. This postpartum video comes with several prebuilt playlists, including Full Program, Vaginal Birth Essentials, and Cesarean Birth Essentials, so you can tailor your teaching to the situation and allotted time. The USB format also allows you to create and save your own custom playlists, so you can cover precisely what you need to (be sure to select the USB format when ordering if you want this custom feature).
