Post a reply: IYCF Counselling... Is it for post-natal care women only?

Hello Team,
We have health and nutrition mobile teams delivering health (IMCI,ANC/PNC,Immunization), and nutrition (OTP) services. IYCF counselling is one of these services. In the mobile team reports we found the number of IYCF counselling is equal to the number of Post-natal care visits.
My understanding is pregnant women(Ante-natal care) did not get IYCF counselling. For me it is logical as the pregnant women did not have babies yet. While IYCF is more practical (rather than breastfeeding messages) so applied only to the lactating women (women in post-natal care)
What do you think?
