ABSTRACT

Background: It is estimated that 1 million babies die each year due to birth asphyxia. Birth asphyxia is the inability of a new born baby to breathe immediately after birth. Globally, it is approximated that 10 million babies cannot do it by themselves and need assistance. Helping babies breathe is a key component to reducing neonatal mortality due to birth asphyxia.

Methods: A quantitative approach by using a cross-sectional design was used. A total of 330 respondents were included in the study. Simple random sampling by lottery was used to select the 2 regions and health facilities. The participants for the study were selected through convenient sampling.
