Bupa Arabia launches the FIRST Maternity Booth through its life-touching Tebtom program
Bupa Arabia launches for the first time its one-of –a- kind “maternity booth” in GNP Hospital in Jeddah, through its unique program Tebtom. The motive behind creating the booth was to provide breast feeding mothers with the privacy and comfort they need to breast feed their child naturally during hospital visits.
Judy Jisri, Tebtom Program Manager at Bupa Arabia, stated: “We are extremely proud to launch the maternity booth; we aim to engage with mothers directly in order to educate them about the numerous benefits of breastfeeding vs. bottle feeding/formula. The booth is manned by a dedicated female Bupa Delegate that provides mothers with healthcare advice revolving around childcare and nutrition.
Hamsa Mufti, the Tebtom’s Maternity & Childcare’s Operational Manager, stated: “The establishment of the maternity booth is a unique and significant initiative to directly support mothers and help them overcome breastfeeding difficulties and inconveniences in public places.
Our member’s feedback was very positive; and mothers were happy to find the booth at their disposal, some actually commented on how great it was to have dedicated small play area for their older children tagging along with them” This initiative is a continuation of the numerous outstanding services that the Tebtom program offers.
The ‘Maternity and childcare service’ provides mothers with the best healthcare experience throughout their maternity journey from the moment of conception till the child reaches the age of 2. Including guidance, nutritional consultations for both mother and child, breastfeeding tips, and vaccination reminders.”
The Tebtom program offers additional services including: “Doctor on Phone”, “Chronic Care”, “International Second Medical Opinion” “Cancer Care” and ‘Elderly Care’. These services mirror Bupa Arabia’s commitment to fulfill its promise of being the best healthcare provider in the Kingdom, offering community members a healthier and happier life.
