Infant and Young Child feeding Counseling Centre (MOM-AID)

LMRF is a not for profit organization, recognized nationally and internationally for our pioneering work in lactation consultation using mobile phones. Our expertise is in preparing expectant mothers in early initiation and exclusive breastfeeding. In 2010, LMRF launched a project with the objective to use cell phone technology for personalized lactation.

We have counseled more than thousand women in the last two years and achieved almost a hundred percent rate of exclusive breastfeeding. The successful completion of this study led to various national and international training workshops where we have trained counselors from Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and other parts of India.

OUR TRAINED COUNSELORS EXTEND THEIR SERVICES TO THE MOTHERS OF NAGPUR FROM “PREGNANCY TO INFANCY”. We support mothers in their efforts to nourish and nurture their babies. We help them to make correct feeding choices for their babies starting from pregnancy up to infancy. THIS INITIATIVE IS ALIGNED WITH THE INDIAN GOVERNMENT’S NUTRITION PROGRAMME. Our mission is to PROTECT, PROMOTE and SUPPORT BREASTFEEDING through mobile phone counselling.

We are just a phone call away…
