Breastfeeding and healthy eating in pregnancy and lactation : report on a WHO workshop, Arkhangelsk, Russian Federation 5-8 October 1998
AbstractPoor maternal diet, especially during pregnancy and lactation, poses a potential threat to maternal and child health. The woman's nutritional status during these periods has important implications for both her own health and her ability to give birth and breastfeed a healthy infant. Yet even in the 1990s, babies in many countries are still at risk of undernutrition before birth. The Workshop was designed for primary health care workers interested in how food intake and nutritional status affect the health of women and infants. It was attended by paediatricians, gynaecologists/obstetricians and hygienists working in the Russian state system of sanitary6epidemic control. A two-day course for primary health care providers on "breastfeeding management" was followed by pilot testing of the revised WHO/UNICEF training module on "healthy eating in pregnancy and lactation". The participants gained knowledge of international nutrient recommendations and dietary guidelines, of evaluating the nutritional quality of the diet, and of providing advice to women during pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period with a view to promoting WHO guidelines on healthy eating. They also learned about principles of breastfeeding management, which are a priority of the WHO/UNICEF Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative. The Workshop stimulated the development of a plan of action for the Arkhangelsk region to implement dietary guidelines for women and their families
