The Safe Delivery App is developed in collaboration between Maternity Foundation, University of Copenhagen and University of Southern Denmark. The instruction videos are based on international guidelines of WHO (World Health Organization), ALSO (International Advanced Life Support in Obstetrics), FIGO (The International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics), RCOG (The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists), and ACOG (The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists).
