Supporting New Mothers in Nueva Vida

In an effort to stop malnourishment before it even threatens our children we are piloting a new program to train, educate, and care for 60 breastfeeding and new mothers in Nueva Vida.  Dr. Janice Hebbert, our Medical Director, and Flavia Urbina, our Nutritionist, are leading this initiative which will monitor the health of both expecting and new mothers as well as their babies, and provide counseling on health care and adequate nutrition during pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum.  Through this program the women will also learn how to prepare for breastfeeding and they will be given vitamin supplements during pregnancy and up to six months after the birth of their baby.
