Program for mothers-to-be and new moms
While pregnancy and childbirth is a delightful moment in a mother's life, it can also be overwhelming. Realizing the need to support expecting mothers, Infosys conceptualized 'PregnaCare'. This program includes information sessions with experts on a range of subjects including pregnancy-related myths, labor, delivery, postpartum recovery, and baby care. Designed with much thought, the program is focused on helping mothers-to-be experience childbirth in a confident and positive manner. The rich interactions also include awareness about lifestyle, eating habits, general health, nutritional health of the mother and child, and provides emotional and psychological support.
The Infosys HSE (Health, Safety, and Environment) team addresses sessions on exercises that result in improving the efficacy of patterned breathing, relaxation, stress relieving and coping through contractions and labor. The postnatal sessions organized as part of this program offer guidance on seamless recovery and healing post childbirth. Women are also made aware of breastfeeding and provided guidance on infant care.
The program has been found to benefit to-be and new mothers and has effectively supported their integration back into their career. First rolled out at the Infosys Development Centre in Bangalore, the program is now being extended to other Development Centres across India.
