Rainbow Children’s Hospital launches Infant care awareness and Human Milk Bank

Rainbow Children's Hospital celebrated New-Born Week and World Prematurity Day with awareness and other activities, including the launch its first  Human Milk Bank.  This function was presided over by actor Mr Nakkhul Jaidev and his wife Mrs Sruthi, a chef , TV anchor, and breastfeeding supportive mother. Preterm babies who were treated in Rainbow Children’s Hospital took part in the event and it was a happy occasion to see them together. 

Human Milk Bank 

The Human Milk Bank launched by the hospital is single intervention that can reduce duration of hospital stay, prevent feed intolerance and facilitate early recovery in preterm neonates. Preterm babies need human milk and their mothers may not produce enough to feed them. Dr. Rahul Yadav, Lead Consultant, Neonatology, Rainbow Children's Hospital, said, "Prematurity care is often not well taken by society and sometimes the medical fraternity. There is still disbelief in treating a small 500 gms baby. 

At Rainbow Children’s Hospital we have created a niche for micropremies (baby less than 750 gms ) with the motto to improve their quality care and outcomes". Dr. Shobana Rajendran, Sr. Consultant  - Neonatology & Pediatrics and Dr. Arunkumar, Sr. Consultant- Neonatology & Pediatrics, were part of today's event and spoke in detail about preterm baby care.
