Midlands Medical Centre Private Hospital hosted a Breastfeeding awareness day on the 03 August 2011, in conjuction with Breastfeeding awareness week, to educate moms and dads on the importance of breastfeeding. We would like to thank our guest speakers, Yulanda Ridge (Lactation Specialist) Natasha Martins (Paediatric Dietician), Shavana Singh (Speech Therapist), Sr Shirlee Cussons (Unit Manager NICU), Sr Raksha Govender (Unit Manager – Maternity) , Sr Lauren Volsun (Registered Midwife) for their informative talks and tips on Breastfeeding.
We would like to thank Ms Bennett our Public Relations Officer for co-ordinating this awareness day which was a huge success. Once again our guests were treated to delicious snacks from our dedicated kitchen staff, and we would like to thank Ms Maresce Stieger (Catering Manager) for all her efforts.
The awareness day was very well attended and we would like to thank all the mums and the dads who attended.
