The Materna Foundation is pleased to provide tools to our community partners in Central America to aid mothers when they need assistance. Recently, we supplied the Ahuachapan Hospital’s Breast Milk Bank in Ahuachapan, El Salvador with 15 nipple shields. Nipple shields are designed to help mothers having trouble getting their babies to latch onto the breast by providing extra length and structure, making it easier for the baby to latch.

Rebeca Santos, the Head Nurse of the Breast Milk Bank, has been our partner since 2021. Together, we have assisted numerous mothers by providing access to electric breast pumps, manual breast pumps, and nipple shields.

“We have had mothers come to us with three-month-old babies who have never latched, and within just minutes we can help them to achieve a good latch with the help of nipple shields. This has been a great help to our moms and their breastfeeding journeys,” said Rebeca Santos.

Our goal is to support mothers in their efforts to provide the best nutrients for their babies by offering practical solutions and moral support!
