Italy Rolls Out Exciting Multimedia Plan for World Prematurity Day

Italy Rolls Out Exciting Multimedia Plan for World Prematurity Day

Categories: Breastfeeding Today

By Roberta Voltazza, La Leche League Leader, Italy

Since every drop of human milk for a premature baby is of crucial importance, La Leche League Leaders throughout Italy strived to achieve big goals this past November, in honor of World Prematurity Day.

Fresh web content and special-edition magazine

In November, a new series of useful website content for parents was unveiled at www.lllitalia.org.  In addition, a special prematurity-focused issue of the Italian LLL magazine dedicated to parents, Da Mamma a Mamma (meaning: From Mom to Mom) was released. You don’t want to miss it!

Italian translation of beloved breastfeeding video series

In addition Italian Leaders have also been hard at work translating two Global Health Media series videos entitled “Portare il tuo bambino pelle-a-pelle ” (meaning: Carrying your baby skin-to-skin), and “Nutrire il tuo bambino con un bicchierino” (meaning: Cup feeding your small baby). These two videos are being edited by the Canadian Association, and were released on November 17. You can check out the new videos here: https://www.lllitalia.org/risorse/video.html. In addition, an online Facebook event dedicated to mothers of premature and low weight children took place on December 3.

Helpful tool for healthcare providers and Italian-speaking La Leche League Leaders

We will be rolling out an Italian translation of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine (ABM) protocol number 10, “Breastfeeding the Late Pre-term Infant”.

It will be published in Italian on the ABM website found at https://www.bfmed.org/protocols and in our “scientific online magazine” La Gazzetta della Prolattina found at https://www.lagazzettadellaprolattina.it/. Special thanks to Dr. Gerardo Chirichiello of Associazione Italiana Consulenti Professionali In Allattamento Materno (AICPAM) for his collaboration on the translation.
