AT the Hospital Universitario Virgen de la Victoria de Malaga 88 per cent of newborns have been able to leave the Maternity and Fetal Welfare care unit feeding exclusively through breastfeeding.

This has been achieved thanks to the progressive implementation and several years of a program that promotes the benefits of the natural feeding method.

The hospital and its reference primary care centres meet regularly through the Lactation Commission, in which representatives of associations related to this field of health also give advice.

The Nursing Supervisor of the Maternity and Fetal Welfare Area, María Victoria del Moral, has added that the project to promote breastfeeding brings more and more professionals and participants both inside and outside the hospital, “thus helping to recover a healthy habit both for mothers and their newborns, whose positive effects are backed by scientific evidence.”
