Huynh Thi Diem Thuy
I was born and raised in Cam Kim, a riverside village near the ancient town of Hoi An, Vietnam. I moved to the capital city, Hanoi, to study medicine at the Y University for 10 years and then returned to work at the Da Nang Hospital as a pediatrician. For over 20 years, alongside treating children, I have been actively involved in promoting and guiding breastfeeding practices, which has been one of my regular responsibilities.
Raising children exclusively through breastfeeding has been an incredible journey that my two children and I have experienced together. I always share my own experiences with my patients, and it brings me great joy when a mother successfully breastfeeds her child. Children who receive adequate breastfeeding tend to recover from illnesses much faster.
With this course, my aim is to acquire more knowledge and continue supporting families in effectively maintaining breastfeeding practices in Vietnam.
