National Breastfeeding Week 2021: Things to Do in Dubai for Breastfeeding Mums
Mediclinic City Hospital in Dubai is marking National Breastfeeding Week 2021 with two incredibly informative breastfeeding events for mums in the UAE
27 October 2021
What is National Breastfeeding Week?
National Breastfeeding Week aims to highlight the huge benefits that breastfeeding can bring to both the health and welfare of babies and mothers.
However, lactation is a vulnerable time for working mothers who require special support and empowerment to continue breastfeeding.
As a baby friendly accredited hospital, Mediclinic City Hospital in Dubai is dedicated to supporting and educating parents about breastfeeding from the very start.
For this year’s National Breastfeeding Week, from Monday November 1st to Sunday November 7, Mediclinic is continuing their efforts in creating awareness and reinforcing the benefits of breastfeeding to our wider community.
As a part of this celebration, the hospital is organising a few breastfeeding events in Dubai, and mothers in our community are invited to join them!

When it comes breastfeeding, new mothers often find themselves bombarded with all kinds of advice and opinions.
Though given with good intentions, not all advice is helpful, and most of it unfortunately spreads confusion and misinformation.
Join Mediclinic City Hospital in this virtual session where their lactation consultant will bust some common myths around breastfeeding and will also address common concerns and questions.
