Support for Breastfeeding Corner

         Posted on December 15, 2021 under News

To provide a private and a safe space for lactating mothers to breastfeed without shame, UMN has helped in creating a breastfeeding corner at the District Administration Office in Rukum East District. This also raises awareness among the community and staff about the importance of breastfeeding as stigma and taboos are prevalent at UMN’s working communities. 

This thoughtful initiative will now help mothers to nurse in privacy when they visit the government office for personal work such as registering a birth, for citizenship cards and other purposes. The breastfeeding room also has flex displays about proper child-rearing practices for the mothers to learn and a wash corner has been setup right outside the room.
