Postpartum Care

This package allows our caregivers to offer the recovering mother and new baby the support they need. It is tailored specifically for each mother to cater to their needs, depending on the nature of their birth and delivery. Additionally, our caregivers will carry out a mental assessment after delivery as part of our commitment to advocating for maternal mental health. In severe cases, we will refer the new mom to mental health professionals.

Breastfeeding support

Tunza Mama advocates for exclusive breastfeeding in the first 6 months whenever possible. For new mothers however, this is not possible without support and information to make the right choices. The breastfeeding support package is available to offer this support and help new mothers latch properly right from the start. It also includes a home visit in the first 48 hours after birth (if possible).

Complementary Feeding

also known as weaning. This package offers support to mothers and their families during the transition from exclusive breastfeeding to the introduction of solid foods. The WHO recommends that babies breastfeed exclusively for the first six months, after which the baby can start on solids. A Tunza Mama caregiver will conduct a readiness assessment for weaning to confirm that your baby is ready. This is then followed by training mothers and families on ideal meal preparation, both in theory and practical cook sessions. The idea is to provide adequate nutrition, variety and appropriate portion sizes for the baby through different stages of growth. After the first session, follow up sessions are made after about 4 weeks.
