A nutrient-rich diet is important to support breastfeeding. It can be difficult to prioritise good #nutrition when you’re caring for a new baby. One way to practically step up for breastfeeding mothers is to bring them a good meal when you pay her and her new baby a visit.
On a societal level, the rising costs of food in South Africa, as well as the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our economy, pose a serious threat to mothers’ access to food during and after pregnancy. In 2020, Embrace participated in a pilot project that revealed the profound positive impact of income support in fighting maternal hunger. Have a look at the results of the pilot and sign the petition to institute a maternity support grant to help mothers access the nutrition they need.
