UNICEF Advocate Kareena Kapoor Khan talks about

UNICEF Advocate Kareena Kapoor Khan talks about the “Every Child Alive” campaign!

 Kareena Kapoor Khan’s pregnancy was probably the most talked about for any actor in the Indian film industry . While most would shy away from the limelight , the star went on to embrace pregnancy and motherhood and fast became an inspiration to every working mother.

Here’s Kareena’s advice to new mothers :

  • First, we need to feed our newborn babies in the best way that we can: with our breast milk. To give your baby the best start in life that he or she deserves, start breast feeding within the first hour of life – and feed the baby only breast milk, nothing else.
  • Second, we need to challenge harmful beliefs and practices that are putting our babies in danger. We need to entrust ourselves to skilled birth attendants who are properly trained to look after us and our babies in the time around birth.If these people are not available, we need to demand them. No woman should give birth without help from a trained birth attendant. It is too dangerous.
  • Third, we need to look after our girls just as well as we look after our boys. As females ourselves, it is incredibly sad that baby girls do not always get the same care that baby boys do. If your baby girl becomes unwell, get help for them just as quickly as you would do for a boy.
