Keep in mind infant resuscitation differs from neonatal, there are extra precautions, gentler methods and different indications for what needs to be done with infants under 1 month old particularly just born. Midwifery texts will outline it but a more thorough education in it will help assure you better about that.

 

If there's excess bleeding and no pitocin's available, nipple stimulation (breastfeeding ideally), shepherd's purse or some of the blends with cohosh, yarrow, etc on that site inhishands can help. Chewing or eating a chunk of the placenta might help if it's out and cord is clamped and cut already (ew but hey it can help). Also emptying your bladder, and according to a midwife I know focusing on bleeding less will help.
