At Mediclinic Airport Road Hospital in Abu Dhabi, our Lactation and Breastfeeding services are committed to providing comprehensive and compassionate care for mothers and their infants. We understand the significance of breastfeeding, which is the most natural way to feed your baby and fosters a strong bond between mother and child.
Breastfeeding offers numerous health benefits, contributing to both short and long-term well-being for infants and mothers alike. Breast milk, containing vital nutrients, is the ideal source of nourishment for babies during their first six months. It aids in the development of essential body systems, such as eyes, brain, and overall growth, providing the optimal foundation for a healthy start in life.
Moreover, breastfeeding not only benefits the infant but also plays a crucial role in maternal health. It reduces the risk of breast and ovarian cancer for mothers and can aid in postpartum recovery. Additionally, breastfeeding has been linked to a reduced risk of obesity in childhood and later in life, contributing to the long-term health of both the mother and child.
Our team of experienced lactation consultants offers expert guidance and support to mothers, ensuring they receive personalised care tailored to their unique breastfeeding journey. From antenatal counselling to postnatal assistance, our consultants address concerns, provide educational resources, and offer advice on breastfeeding techniques and practices. We strive to empower mothers with the knowledge and support needed to facilitate a successful breastfeeding experience.
Furthermore, we arrange support groups and workshops where mothers can connect with each other, sharing experiences and gaining insights into breastfeeding practices. These sessions provide a supportive environment for mothers to seek advice, address concerns, and build a community.
