Womens Center by Motherhood celebrated World Breastfeeding week by organising a walkathon at Race Course on Sunday. The walkathon was flagged off by Sharmila, District Revenue Officer, Coimbatore. Over 300 people took part. Womens Center by Motherhood will soon launch “Nectar of Life” Breast Milk Bank ATM in association with Rotaray Club of Cotton City, Coimbatore.
A group of lactating mothers gathered to create awareness on breastfeeding and normalize the same in public. “Breast milk is a meal for an infant. So, there is no need to take the infant to a secluded spot or restroom for breastfeeding. There are many ways and methods to breastfeed a child in public in a very dignified way,” said a woman who participated in the event.
Mirudhubashini Govindarajan, Clinical Director, Womens Center by Motherhood, Coimbatore said, “Under WHO Guidelines on Donor Human Milk Banking (DHMB), the Breast Milk Bank ATM will be extremely helpful in treating pre-term babies and NICU cared babies. This would act as a comprehensive lactation management center for collecting and delivering breast milk to the needy infants.”
