This program is part of the Caafimaadkeena series. The DVD shares medically sound and culturally appropriate information on the sensitive subject of reproductive health, bridging the gap between Somali patients and health care providers.
Somali viewers learn about topics like child spacing, breastfeeding, nutrition and exercise, and demystifying C-sections. Health practitioners gain sensitivity to Somali cultural concerns about childbirth practices.
The DVD features local Somali actors and is presented in Somali with English subtitles. The movie frames these health topics within the stories of several young Somali couples’ experiences giving birth and raising families in the Unites States.
