Safe and Family Centered Care in Maternity Hospitals

Commitment by

Funlarguia

In 2011, Funlarguía committed to implement their successful Safe and Family Centered Maternity Care Hospital (SFCMH) Initiative in 100 principal maternity hospitals in Argentina. Through this commitment, SFCMH hopes to improve health outcomes for newborns and also create positive experiences for mothers at maternity hospitals by ensuring that they receive one-on-one support during the delivery, contact with their newborns, and encouragement to breastfeed. The initiative is centered on family's rights, and will promote the family's participation in supporting mothers and newborns at all stages of pregnancy and birth.
