Maternal, Newborn Child Health & Nutrition (MNCHN)

Safe pregnancy, motherhood and childhood are basic human rights and Mamta HIMC works towards outcomes that increase accessibility and availability to maternal/newborn healthcare services with a focus on an integrated model of health care from birth through childhood. We work with health functionaries, opinion leaders and communities to address challenges contributing to high maternal and child deaths. Through this process, we empower mothers to make healthcare decisions. The evidence generated is used to guide policy and practice at national and international platforms.


The pre-pregnancy stage is a crucial life stage as the foundation of healthy adulthood and parenthood. Mamta’s MNCHN program engages with women in the pre-pregnancy stage and continues to do so at the antenatal, neonatal and child health care phases to provide holistic care.

Antenatal care

We focus on strategies recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO) that include four antenatal care visits, consumption of 90 or more iron-folic acid (IFA) tablets, administration of two or more Tetanus Toxoid (TT) injections and preparedness for delivery.

Post Partum and Natal Care

It is crucial that the mother recovers quickly after delivery in order to ensure the health and well-being of her infant. Care during this stage helps the mother to cope up with the hormonal and physical changes and places her in a position to care for the newborn. Mamta’s interventions focus on the care and support of mothers and infants, and address community barriers including myths, social practices, and cultural practices that negatively affect their well-being.
