In a year, about 14 000 children are born in Estonia, of whom 5-8% require resuscitation at birth. To help a child successfully out of the critical condition in the best possible way, there is a need to train staff at maternity centers to teach them resuscitation skills.

In 2013 Pelgulinna Maternity Hospital Support Fund acquired an innovative simulator doll for the Pelgulinna Maternity Hospital to mimic the newborns. We are the only maternity hospital in Estonia to have that machine. Practicing of resuscitation and analysing it helps clinicians to get used to the situation, cementing their skills and knowledge in order to act as a team in critical situations. We have trained a team of 5 people to work with the doll, a team which is competent to train and share their skills with personnel in all 14 maternity hospitals in Estonia.

The majority of Estonia's maternity hospitals can not afford to buy the doll, which is why the training is particularly important. We use the donations to cover the cost of training so that every maternity hospital in Estonia could have the training at least once a year.
