For the last 14 years I have been working as a nurse in the Neonatal Unit, looking after new-born babies with critical health problems and accompanying their families, with special focus on skin-to-skin care and breastfeeding. I also devote time to training colleagues and students in the field of breastfeeding in newborn babies, both healthy and sick. For 8 years, I coordinated a support group for mothers, where I offered guidance on breastfeeding and upbringing. "I like to carry on learning and keep up to date in the fields of my profession, particularly breastfeeding and upbringing, both as a nurse and as a mother".
