Breastfeeding is one of the best gifts a mother can give to her baby. When a mother breastfeeds her baby, she gives nutrition that was designed for a newborn, she shares her immunity, and she nurtures her baby with the love and closeness only breastfeeding can provide. A breastfed baby is happier, significantly healthier, and less susceptible to numerous infections that artificially fed babies suffer from.
Hameed Latif Hospital is highly dedicated to supporting breastfeeding women and providing guidance and advice. It is a common misconception that breastfeeding comes naturally, unfortunately, it does not. It is a skill that needs to be learned by both, the mother and her baby, and more often than not, unsuccessful attempts or obstacles within a few weeks regrettably lead to premature weaning.
At Hameed Latif Hospital, our lactation consultants are highly trained in imparting beneficial knowledge on the best ways to feed newly born infants. This can help enhance the women’s breastfeeding experience and at the same time help build a strong ‘mother-child bond’. If you are planning to give birth soon, it is advisable to seek the services of our lactation experts, as part of your maternity package, so that you are given tips on breastfeeding before leaving for home with your newborn.
Our Lactation Department provides mothers with qualified lactation specialists who are trained to help with any possible problems that could arise while breastfeeding and weaning their baby. We go beyond theory to practically demonstrate breastfeeding techniques to new mums. This can help new mothers overcome such problems as low milk production, painful breasts, and inverted nipples – problems that only a lactation expert can help solve.
