Caring for Mothers Under Stress

Globally, more than 1 million babies die each year because they’re not fed properly—mostly in resource-poor environments, according to infant-feeding specialist Brooke Bauer.
 
That’s where groups like Nurture Project International come in. The NGO, founded by Bauer, provides lactation support, reproductive care and nutrition support to families in emergencies in Greece and Iraq.  
 
“For us, it’s a matter of making sure all options have been explored and support has been offered so mothers can make the choice” between formula and breastfeeding, Bauer says in a Q&A with The Lancet. “We always incorporate mental health support as well.”
