Under the Maternal, New Born and Child Health Project, the Uttar Pradesh Technical Support Unit (UPTSU) is strengthening the labour rooms in Uttar Pradesh. Nurse Mentors (NMs) are skilled nursing professionals who provide on-site mentoring and supportive supervision to staff nurses and ANMs on improving the quality of intrapartum and immediate post-partum care. NMs help enhance birth attendance skills among staff nurses and ANMs through teaching, case reviews, case studies, demonstration, and modelling bedside patient care in mini skill labs that have been established in Community Health Centres (CHCs) and integrated mini skill labs in 25 District Women’s Hospitals (DWHs). This video highlights the intervention undertaken to improvise the quality of services being provided at the facility level in Maruri Block, Pilibhit District of Uttar Pradesh. In this video, the Nurse Mentor throws light on the clinical mentorship that is being provided to the Staff Nurses to conduct safe ANC and Post Natal Care so as to secure life of mother and child.
