World Breastfeeding Week: How Chandigarh-Based YouCare Is Empowering Mothers With Caregiving

World Breastfeeding Week: How Chandigarh-Based YouCare Is Empowering Mothers With  Caregiving

A woman becomes a mother after 9 months of painful labour. Once delivered, the child is preferably handed over to the mother for skin contact which also initiates a bond between the two and the process of breastfeeding. A natural process to nurse the baby, breastfeeding comes with a number of other benefits like enabling sensory and cognitive development, protecting the infant against diseases and reducing infant mortality.

Every year World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated across the globe, from August 1st to 7th with an aim to encourage breastfeeding and improving the health of babies. The theme selected this year is Empowering Parents to enable breastfeeding with an objective to make parents aware of the benefits of exclusive breastfeeding for at least six months as it has many benefits for both the infant and the mother.

While the motives behind celebrating a Breastfeeding week worldwide remains more or less similar, here are a few insights into its importance.

– According to a series of information released by WHO, every newborn baby has the right to good nutrition.

– UNICEF released a survey in 2016 that mentioned about 41 million children in the world is obese and 155 million under 5 yrs of age being too short for their age.

– Breastfeeding doesn’t just improve the child’s health but also reduces the risk of mothers to develop Breast Cancer, Ovarian cancer, Type 2 Diabetes and Heart disease.

along with the other 119 countries, India has opened up to mark a day in the calendar dedicated to the importance of Breastfeeding. While at a grassroots level, concerned departments are organizing exhibitions, and events on nutrition and diets for infants and young children, the Home Healthcare industry in India seems to have followed in the footsteps equally.

We had hired a patient care attendant for my wife who was recuperating after a hip surgery and was completely bed ridden. Youcare carefully analyzed our requirement and understood the preferences and nature of my wife before attaching a caregiver to us. Our caregiver was very caring, punctual and always had a smile on her face. She not only attended to my wife`s needs but also encouraged her to become independent. Within 6 months my wife could actually start walking. I will really recommend YouCare to everyone in need of professional care services.

This is a professional organisation managed by well educated professionals wanting to do good work and provide exceptional services. Will certainly recommend to all working couples to reach out to them.
