Breastfeeding is a call of nature and the mother and child need to respond to this call in the most appropriate way. However, breastfeeding mothers who work face various challenges in responding to it. Amref Health Africa announced that it has enhanced its maternity policy by offering six months maternity leave, including annual leave. Amref Health Africa’s vision is to achieve lasting health change which includes promoting women’s reproductive and maternal health. This call provides critical nutrients that a baby needs, particularly in the first six months to achieve optimal growth, development, and health, as per the WHO recommendations. The review of the policy was informed by the need to improve mental health of mothers, boost retention of female talent and reduce the gender pay gap caused by women having to drop off work once they have children. An enhanced maternity policy will greatly benefit the youthful female workforce, solidify organization's commitment to maternal health and allow a meaningfully contribution to the promotion of maternal health and well-being.
