This national PSA campaign will include Broadcast and Cable TV in major designated market areas across the country and is expected to generate more than 60 million impressions.
This PSA was created to inform the public about Electronic Fetal Monitoring (EFM) and how it is used throughout prenatal care and during labor to monitor the baby. While the mother can talk to her health care team, Electronic Fetal Monitoring is the voice of the baby.
The message: Your baby communicates, and your certified EFM healthcare team understands, because they all speak the same language.
NCC created the “Your Baby Communicates” PSA to highlight the advantages of certification in Electronic Fetal Monitoring. Describing how healthcare professionals who are nationally certified in EFM understand what the baby is communicating by using their specialty knowledge to assess the fetal condition - especially during labor. They work effectively as a team, using a systematic approach to identify and manage clinical situations, caring for two patients at one time.
Having Electronic Fetal Monitoring certification from NCC promotes effective communication and collaboration amongst the different roles team members may have.
