Baby-friendly Hospitals
Not all hospitals are friendly or helpful in starting breastfeeding with your baby.

Some hospitals routinely separate mother and baby for no medical reason, give formula or sugar water via bottles without consulting the mother. Having a baby is hard enough, you need a hospital friendly to you and your baby!

The Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative is a global campaign launched by UNICEF and the World Health Organization to support all mother's in their right to choose breastfeeding for their babies. To earn the "Baby Friendly Hospital" award, the hospitals have to show that they have adopted certain practices to support successful breastfeeding.

Following is a list (citywise) of the Baby Friendly hospitals in Maharashtra. If you need more information on any of these Hospitals, please contact a Mother Support Group Leader closest to your area.
