Breastfeeding is the purest form of love that only a mother understands and experiences.

These days, a high number of women are returning back to work after their pregnancy, and companies should support it.

First of all, breastfeeding gives the best kind of nutrition to the baby and it is a must for the baby’s health. This also improves the relationship between the mother and child too.

It is recommended that babies are given breastfeeding until they are 6 months old. While some people also insist on feeding the child in the same way until they are 1 year old. It is better to ask the physician about this and choose the right way for your baby.

The ways in which you can support the cause, and practice the same at your workspace:

  • supporting the idea of breastfeeding, and encouraging more women to breastfeed in the workplace.
  • giving accurate and required guidance to the women returning to work right after their pregnancy.
  • make it easy for them to access the health education relating to the food and the nutrition which is required for all the breastfeeding mothers.
  • Let the mothers do the breastfeeding and not make them feel awkward about this.
  • Doing a study on the materials and facilities which are required for the breastfeeding, and also work on the storage options for the breast milk.

You don’t have much idea of the benefits of supporting this cause. But there is a bigger picture beyond what you can imagine. With considering the breastfeeding option, you are actually decreasing the infant mortality. It also decreases the risk of childhood infectious diseases which is commonly found in the babies.

This will ultimately inspire more companies to take up the initiative, and also make more mothers realize the importance of the breastfeeding their children. Share this amazing idea with your teammates, family, and friends, and let them know that Breastfeeding does not hinder the growth and instead makes the mother stronger than before.

WHO says: Respectful Maternity Care is mandatory | No Abuse, No Disrespect

The WHO(World Health Organization) recommends that each pregnant woman is given the Respectful Maternity Care. This special care ensures that all the mothers undergoing pregnancy is given the best care keeping their dignity, privacy, confidentiality as the highest preference.

It also makes sure that the woman is given the freedom from harm or any kind of disrespect. This rule also enables that all the informed choices are made known to the pregnant lady, and they are given a continuous support throughout the labor and childbirth time.

Respectful Maternity Care is mandatory

Respectful Maternity Care is mandatory ~ WHO says

If your special friend is pregnant, and they are admitted to the hospital – what will you wish for her? Lots of care, and above all – “she is happy and content with the treatment“. But not each woman have the usual happy experience. As you collect the reports and evidence of maternity care from the wealthiest to the poorest nations, the results are sad and even disturbing.

This is why, WHO decided to frame a set of universal laws for all the Childbearing Women in the world. The Laws are given in the form of articles, and we shall check them out one by one.

  • All Women in the World has the right to be free from any kind of harm and ill-treatment. 
  • Every woman is entitled to the right to information, refusal, informed consent, and even the respect for her choices & preferences. For example, whom she wants as the companion during the maternity care. 
  • All the lovely women in the world have the right to privacy and confidentiality.
  • Each woman has the authority to be treated with respect and dignity.
  • Every woman has the right to equality when it comes to maternity care, and it should be completely free from any kind of discrimination. 
  • All women have the right to quality health care and the best kind of treatment. 
  • Every woman has the freedom to take decisions by herself and to be self-determined without any pressure/force from anyone else.

I guess a lot of the ladies are still not aware of these rights, and especially when it comes to sensitive topics like the Maternity Care. WHO took the issue, and has made the above rules for the Maternity Care. If you found the article helpful, then pass on to your family and friends, and tell them to share this info!
