The article describes validation of a new training module for skilled and semiskilled birth attendants providing care at birth—Helping Mothers Survive: Bleeding after Birth (HMS:BAB)—aimed at reducing postpartum hemorrhage (PPH). BAB training involves single-day, facility-based training that emphasizes simulation of scenarios related to prevention, detection, and management of PPH. A total of 155 skilled and semiskilled birth attendants participated in training in India, Malawi, and Zanzibar, Tanzania. BAB training in prevention and management of PPH increased knowledge and confidence among skilled and semiskilled birth attendants. Further studies are needed to determine the impact of this training on skills retention and clinical outcomes following PPH, after broader implementation of the training program.
