Sometimes we feel like speaking with a friend who has experience with breastfeeding.

BSIM now offers you an opportunity to speak with a mother who has breastfeeding experience to be your StanpanSaathi.

What’s StanpanSaathi you ask?
Stanpan in Hindi is Breastfeeding & Saathi is a friend.
We are a peer to peer support group and this is what we do best!

In this service, you can select a StanpanSaathi who is an experienced breastfeeding mother to provide peer support, through information sharing (contextualised to personal need), emotional support, basic counselling for a duration of 2 weeks.
