what is new born baby & mother care program?

Pregnancy care comprises of three parts prenatal care, during pregnancy and postnatal care. While a lot of attention is given to prenatal care, postnatal care is equally important. In fact, postnatal is a difficult period and the new mother requires a lot of care, guidance and attention for the proper recovery and good health of both the mother and the child. Giving birth can be both an emotional and stressful period for a new mother. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) the first 24 hours after birth are most critical for both the baby and the mother and proper care and attention should be given to the new mother and the baby in this period.

Portea offers a carefully designed Kanga and Roo program. It is a postnatal care program that takes the workload and the worries away from the new parents. Parenthood is an overwhelming experience and in today’s world where couple’s are sometimes forced to live away from their families or have no family support in this critical period, they have to take care of the baby on their own. This translates into a lot of work and stress for the new parents, especially in the first few months which are critical for both the baby and the mother.

Under the Kanga and Roo program Portea assigns a medically trained care giver to help the mother with newborn baby care and also offers after delivery care for mother.

tips for new mom at home

Becoming a mother is a great feeling. However, after giving birth to a baby, the new mothers might experience several emotions at a time. Especially when becoming a mother for the very first time, things are more challenging. Mothers may feel tired and go through several challenges. To make the journey of motherhood smooth and less stressful, here are some effective tips for moms.

  • Prepare a complete checklist – Get a checklist ready and list down all the items required for nursing and proper baby care.
  • Handle the newborn with care – Newborn babies are delicate. So, holding them with utmost care is vital. Make sure to support the head of the baby to prevent your child from experiencing any kind of discomfort.
  • Select the baby products wisely – Babies have sensitive skin that is easily prone to irritation and rashes. So, ensure that you are getting genuine skin care products that are free from harsh cleansing agents, strong fragrances, and artificial additives. Consult healthcare professionals to get information about the best brands for childcare products.
  • Breastfeed Your Baby – Breastfeed your newborn for at least three months. Make sure to feed your baby at regular intervals throughout the day.
  • Trim the Nails – The skin of babies is delicate. So, if they have long nails, there is a chance that they might end up hurting themselves. Trimming the nails of the babies regularly prevents any scratches due to long nails.
  • Choose Comfortable Clothes – Choose stretchable, soft, and easy-to-wear clothes for your child to ensure optimum comfort.
  • Know the Basics of Baby Cleaning – You can expect your baby to poop or pee at least 8 to 10 times a day. So, make sure to regularly check and change the dirty diaper of the baby to avoid any infections. 
  • Bond with the Baby – Try to develop a bond with the baby through eye contact, skin-to-skin contact, and meeting the needs of the baby. 

Following the above-listed advice for new parents will ensure the good health and well-being of the babies.
