Chattogram Bureau :
The 30-bed Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) unit in the neonatal ward of Chittagong Medical College (CMC) and Hospital was officially inaugurated on March 17. In this special unit, sick children have access to treatment from the mother’s chest. For so long, the newborn was treated inside the scan, separated from the mother. And mothers had to wait outside. Mothers used to get the opportunity to go inside and breastfeed their baby when the call came from time to time.
However, with the launch of the Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) unit, mothers are getting the opportunity to hold their children in their arms.
After the inauguration of the KMC unit, this time the department is starting its journey as a regional training center for nurses in KMC services. This is the first time outside the capital, the head of the Department of Neonatal and Child Health at CMC Hospital Jagadish Chandra Das disclosed it to the media.
