Breast Milk is the best for the newborn! It is the most complete food available and has all the essential ingredients in the correct proportions for healthy growth and development. It has several advantages for the baby and the mother. Although breastfeeding brings its own unique rewards, it is an art that must be learned.
To prepare the mothers for breastfeeding well before they handle their babies, awareness classes are being conducted at Fernandez Hospital in all the units for the expecting mothers. To make all the mothers confident in breastfeeding, we at Fernandez Hospital, have lactation counsellors and nurses trained in lactation to help the mothers round the clock to make your journey smooth and happy.
For any concerns regarding breastfeeding, either you can contact our Lactation Help line, 040 40632411 or mail to email@example.com to aid you in issues related to lactation.
You can also help other needy mothers to nourish their babies by donating excess breast milk. Fernandez Hospital has a “Human milk bank”, where milk is collected, screened, processed by borns. It gives you the satisfaction of helping sick and premature babies for their survival and early discharge from hospital. It is a service to humanity.

Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) is a technique that requires the mother to hold her newborn wrapped to her chest in a 24-hour, skin-to-skin contact, the way a kangaroo keeps its young one in its pouch after it is born. KMC is popular in many developing countries like Colombia, the Philippines, and South Africa.
Babies with low birthweight (LBW) need extra special care, which is initially provided as intensive care in a critical care unit. Once they stabilize, most LBW babies just need to be kept warm. Conventionally, babies are kept warm in an incubator where they are separated from their mothers for days. In KMC, the babies are wrapped to their mother's chest with a special broad strap. This skin-to-skin contact keeps them as warm as they would be in an incubator. Additionally, it makes them physiologically more stable, enables them to bond better with their mother, have fewer serious infections, go home sooner, and breastfeed better and longer. Studies have shown that KMC babies catch up with their normal growth rate faster than babies kept in an incubator.
Fernandez Hospital is a pioneer of Kangaroo Mother Care in Telangana and is the first private hospital to offer continuous KMC. The hospital has a special KMC Ward where mothers of low birthweight babies are initiated into Kangaroo Mother Care. The concept is gaining increasing acceptance by new parents.
Breast Milk has been shown by many research studies to be the absolute best food for babies.It confers many protective health benefits that, amazingly, continue well into adult life. Fernandez Hospital believes it is vital that breast milk should be available for the newborn until the mother is able to feed the baby herself.
We run a Donor Milk Bank that receives milk from other mothers. The milk is very carefully screened, in a manner like the way Blood Banks screen donors. New mothers at Fernandez Hospital are often happy to help others who may be experiencing difficulties. So, after they have fed their own babies, they express the extra milk into special containers. This milk is then pasteurized, screened, and stored in a deep freezer. When the need arises and with prior consent, the frozen milk is thawed and fed to the newborn that needs it.
