The Motherhood Walk-a-Thon actuated in all the three cities simultaneously from Mount Carmel College (Bangalore), Vivekananda Ellam (Chennai), and Stanley College (Hyderabad).

Dr. Mohammed Rehan Sayeed chairman of Motherhood said “Breast feeding is the most efficient way of keeping your baby healthy, not only when they are young but later in life too. Breastfeeding boosts the immune system and thus avoid illnesses.” Dr. Jayashree Murthy, Consultant Gynecologist & Obstetrician at Motherhood, further added “Breast feeding is very important for the baby as breast milk contains factors which boost the baby's immunity making them resistant to infections and therefore healthier babies. Babies also digest the breast milk better than artificial feeds and are less likely to be constipated or have diarrhea. Most importantly, breast-feeding promotes mother-baby bonding.”

To breastfeed or not is a personal choice and at times it is a matter of preference, but Motherhood wants to emphasize on the importance and benefits of breastfeeding through the Motherhood Walk-a-Thon. According to UNICEF, breastfeeding a child increases the survival chances by at least six times as compared to the non- breastfed child.
