The videos highlight things a woman could expect from breastfeeding and advice about common complications that some women may experience when they breastfeed their child.
While the videos were originally intended for women in developing countries, Global Health Media believes they would be useful to all women worldwide.
On the Global Health Media website, the videos are separated into key factors of breastfeeding including; attaching your baby at the breast, increasing your milk supply and breastfeeding positions.
Director at Global Health Media, Deborah Van Dyke said: “Breastfeeding is a skill that is learned most effectively by ‘seeing and doing’. The power of visuals is vitally important for mothers learning how to breastfeed.”
The videos are narrated in English, French and Spanish and were launched to coincide with World Breastfeeding Week at the beginning of August.
Other subjects are also presented through film, such as childbirth, Cholera and Ebola.
Global Health Media is a charity that presents a range of subjects through “the power of video”, educating people around the world.
