Tubes of Life focusses on how your baby receives OXYGEN through the umbilical cord (Tube of Life) whilst pregnant, and then through their own airway once born (Tube of Life).
We call these the Tubes of Life as they deliver the life giving OXYGEN that your baby needs for healthy growth and brain development.
What Luton Practitioners are learning:
Health Professionals based in Luton including midwives, health visitors, family centre staff and practitioners who work with pregnant or new parents are attending evidence based training as featured in the Practitioner training video (supported by Public Health Luton).
Having learned the importance of Tubes of Life they can then share these key life-changing and life-saving messages with pregnant and new parents.
