2. How mother's milk is a complete food
3. How to maintain hygiene during breastfeeding
4. How family members should give support to the mothers of newborn babies
5. How long mother should breastfeed her child
6. What kind of nutritious diet young mother should have so that she can give sufficient milk to her baby for a long period
Inner Wheel members in India always work for underprivileged. Many Inner Wheel Clubs visited Government Maternity Hospitals where pregnant women came for a checkup. Various lectures were arranged for to- be mothers to prepare them for effective breastfeeding.
During Hospital visits, Inner Wheel Clubs gave clothes to newborn babies. They also gave nutritious food supplements, medicines, and personal hygiene products to new mothers.
Special lectures were arranged on the concept of Milk Bank and also on - how to make mother's milk available to babies whose mothers go out to work.
It was amazing to know how Inner Wheel in India reached to the nooks and corners of the various towns and villages to spread this awareness.
It may a drop in ocean, but this work will definitely save many infants from infections, control child mortality rate and will help in making new generation mentally and physically strong!
