Event description

Description

A free Lactation Education Programme followed by interactive question answer session for expecting mothers to guide them about Breastfeeding and Nutrition of Neonates & Infants.

Event held on the 3rd Friday of Every Month Time : 2PM Venue : Breach Candy Hospital Auditorium

Breastfeeding can become a challenging issue for new mothers with problems like engorgement, sore nipples, mastitis, low milk supply,breast abcess and many others. These mothers often fail to get timely guidance due to which they unwillingly have to give up breastfeeding. A lactation consultant would be the right person to help these mothers as she would asses both the baby and the mother, as well as observe the nursing sessions and accordingly make a specific plan of action for that particular case.

Dr. Preeti Gangan (MBBS, DCH, IBCLC) a Pediatrician & Lactation Consultant is perhaps the first person in Mumbai to be certified as a Lactation Consultant by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners, Virginia USA, in the year 2008.

After passing out her undergraduate & postgraduate exams from the prestigious Seth G S Medical College Mumbai and due to her personal lactation experience, she felt that there was an acute lack of lactation consultants to assist mothers solve their lactation problems. Taking that as an inspiration she got herself certified as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
