World Breast Feeding Week 2019
Breastfeeding plays a very important role in the road to health of not just an individual but to a family, community, society, country and the world at large. To ensure sustainability to this very important road to health, empowerment is the key. This is also illustrated in the logo given by WABA showing both parents with the baby & society.
We, the Departments of Neonatology, Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology, College of nursing, Community health, lactation department and research institute of St. John’s Medical College hospital organized one week long celebration in order to promote, educate and re-iterate the importance of breastfeeding.
Over the period of 1 week, all efforts were taken to educate various health personnel including doctors, nurses, students on the importance of human milk and breastfeeding through various innovative, fun educational activities.
