Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) has been proven to be an effective method to improve neonatal health outcomes, especially among low birth weight infants. KMC is also the essential link to initiate and maintain breastfeeding. This special kind of care is simple and inexpensive, yet brings immense benefits and satisfaction to infants, their mothers (and even fathers). KMC is feasible both in a hospital setting and even at home.
However, awareness about KMC and its implementation are still in an infantile phase both among health professionals and the public.
This hands-on, interactive workshop is aimed at creating awareness about KMC and how to implement KMC in your own setting.
Who should attend?
Healthcare professionals involved in caring for premature and low birth weight infants both in the hospital and in the community clinics.
