Webinar Organised on Covid 19 & Breastfeeding

Dear Friends, 
Greetings from BPNI!

We are amidst a global pandemic of COVID-19, and this has thrown our life into a disarray. The healthcare and medical facilities are primarily focusing on COVID infected patients and their care. Medical services like antenatal and postnatal care and counselling are amongst those important services which are taken aback. For protecting the interests of pregnant women and lactating mothers, UNICEF/ WHO and other agencies have come out with guidelines. New research is also. being published on the subject.

We conducted a webinar to provide up-to-date information about the importance of breastfeeding by the COVID-19 suspected or positive mothers. In the webinar the experts shared the global guidance on the subject and recommendations by the Government of India and UN agencies. Evidence based practical support to mothers to practice breastfeeding will also be discussed. It will be helpful to all those who are working to support of pregnant women and lactating mother and infants including BPNI members, infant and young child feeding counselling specialists, paediatricians, obstetricians, nursing staff and programme managers from state government, nutritionists, programme managers and UNICEF health and nutrition functionaries.

Details of the experts are as follows:

Patti Rundall Policy Director, Baby Milk Action, UK

Dr. J.P. Dadhich, Technical Director, BPNI

 Dr. Gayatri Singh, Child Development Specialist, UNICEF India

Dr. Arun Gupta, Central Coordinator, BPNI
