The breastfeeding course by the volunteer midwife for the women of “A Step Forward” project, was a valuable lesson in managing the care of their baby as they learned important information that every woman has the right to know and is linked to the development of a healthy child.
Issues discussed were about the physiology and pathology of lactation, the correct technique of breastfeeding, the nutrition of the breastfeeding woman and further questions were answered through personal discussion with the women and the midwife.
The aim of the meeting was to equip mothers with the necessary knowledge that will help them to better understand both their and their baby’s body and by gaining more confidence to enhance the quality of care for their baby.
