In conjunction with World Breastfeeding Week, the ibu Family Resource Group or ‘ibu‘ is organising the Ibu Breastfeeding Awareness Day 2018. We love the mummies of ibu, and we love this super helpful endeavour!
Specially for expecting couples and young families in the Klang Valley to learn about the benefits of breastfeeding. There will also be plenty of practical tips, and lessons on how to avoid ‘boobytraps‘ from medical, developmental and childbirth experts.
Set in a conducive and nurturing environment, the Breastfeeding Awareness Day (BAD) wants to celebrate how ‘badass’ it is to breastfeed because “even though it is a natural and beautiful bonding experience, it takes guts and determination to breastfeed in this day and age.”
Mothers and mothers-to-be will be enlightened and empowered during a morning of talks with experts and specialists. The event will also showcase the best from within ibu’s Support Groups network and partners.
Speakers include Dr Ainul Zahaniah Hj Abd Aziz (OBGYN) and Namrita Deora (HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator, Breastfeeding Counselor), speaking on topics such as Boobytraps: Medical Advice For Potential Breastfeeding Problems and Breastfeeding Positions & Correct Latch.
Children may be kept occupied at the separate play area while a parent attends the workshops. Great stuff!
The ibu Family Resource Group is a non-profit organisation which provides early childhood information and services to families in Malaysia. The ibu Breastfeeding Awareness Day will raise funds for disadvantaged mothers and children at Rumah Kita.
