As a sponsor of the 31st International Confederation of Midwives Triennial Congress, Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. wanted to distinguish this year's event by attempting a Guinness World Records title.
Since both organisations aim to promote midwifery education, they wanted to achieve the record for the Largest massage lesson and teach techniques that midwives can apply to newborn infants.
With this year’s gathering held in Toronto, Canada, Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc., arranged for 397 midwives to take part in a record-breaking lesson that demonstrated researched infant soothing practices that can be used in a home environment.
The lesson was structured by Dr. Tiffany Field, who has a strong background in infant care and saw the guests practice on model baby dolls.
After surpassing the 30 minute requirement for the lesson, midwife attendees celebrated enthusiastically for successfully achieving their goal and setting a new record title.
