For optimal maternal health and child development
When it comes to pregnancy, health means far more than the absence of disease. Pregnancy must be approached from a holistic perspective, taking into account the health of both the future mother and the foetus.

Breast milk is food best suited to meeting all your baby's needs. The reason for this is simple: the newborn's digestive system and metabolism are designed for human milk.
