For first time parents, having a child can be intimidating with no previous experience of taking care of a new born baby. But parents are aware, especially mothers that it is their primary duty to take care of their baby’s vital nutritional needs and happiness. It has been proved that until the baby gets 6 months old, breast milk is the best nutrition, benefiting both the child’s and mothers health. To make mothers aware of this healthy fact, Philips AVENT is encouraging a free breastfeeding and child nutrition event that will take place in Dubai and Abu Dhabi at the end of May 2012.
At the event, Philips AVENT has invited a midwife educator, who will keep mums-to-be and mothers well informed on the advantages of breastfeeding plus educate them on the weaning process beyond the age of 6 months. After the conference, mothers will overcome any fears regarding breastfeeding or introducing solid food to their baby. They will be able to understand how their baby thinks and why he behaves the way he does. The session which will take in the first part of the day is free of charge to attend. It will begin at 8:30 am with break for coffee and pastries and will last for about four hours.
The second part of the day is for healthcare professionals, namely gynaecologists, midwives, breastfeeding advisors, nursing professionals, neonatologists and paediatricians who will explore the topic of lasting benefits of breastfeeding, the latest research and developments in vaccine technology and the secret connection between fever and nutrition.
Event Details: Monday, 28 May 2012, Beach Rotana, Abu Dhabi
Wednesday, 30 May 2012, Habtoor Grand, Dubai
If you are planning your Dubai Holidays during the event time period and are a mother/expectant mother, seriously think about attending the education class.
