With an aim to help a new mom understand baby care which can be hectic and overwhelming. To clear all the doubts of a new mom, and make her motherhood journey more exciting, Wockhardt Hospital, Mumbai Central conducted an event known as ‘Merries Babies Day Out’. Experts and child educators guided the new mothers and gave them personalized advice on nutrition, fitness, breastfeeding, sleeping, baby massages, and baby’s brain development.

But there are some steps that can help you in taking care of your new-born at home. The hospital organized a training session for a day, for more than 30 new moms. It was a valuable experience for all the new moms”.
