Every facility providing maternity services and care for newborn infants should: Show mothers how to breastfeed and how to maintain lactation, even if they should be separated from their infants. Nursing staff should offer further assistance with breastfeeding within six hours of delivery and mothers should be shown how to express their milk or given written information on expression and/or advised where they could get help, should they need it. Mothers with babies in special care should be helped to initiate and maintain lactation by frequent expression of breastmilk. Staff should teach mothers positioning/attachment and techniques for manual expression of breastmilk. A situation can arise when the baby has to be separated from her mother for a specific medical reason.
