Timed to coincide with World Breastfeeding Week this week, the new facility allows staff to breast-feed or express milk in a safe, clean environment.
One of the major stumbling blocks to increasing the number of breast-feeding mothers is the lack of facilities in workplaces. With many businesses still failing to reserve an area for breast-feeding, mothers often choose alternative feeding methods, resulting in babies losing out on the benefits of breast milk.
The chief executive of the hospital, Dr Matodzi Mukosi, believes providing an area for mothers is essential.
“This facility will benefit our staff who are mothers and still dedicate their time to take care of the children in the community," he said.
