The pandemic COVID-19 has brought with it anxiety, fears and concerns for not only yourself but also for your unborn or lactating baby.  The information that we are receiving is constantly changing as this pandemic evolves.  Please read information from credible sources; ensure that it is an entity that supports/promotes breastfeeding.  

Consider the fact that the benefit of breastfeeding outweighs the risk of your baby contracting coronavirus.  Up to this date, there have not been any confirmed cases of babies contracting coronavirus through mother's milk. The World Health Organization reports of a research that suggest that this is not likely.   

Hospitals/Healthcare Providers should take into consideration parent's wishes to breastfeed and/or room-in (have baby in your room at all times) with their infant.  They should teach you steps that you can take such as wearing a mask while breastfeeding if mother is positive, along with washing your hands well before touching your baby.   When either mother or baby is ill, pumped breast milk can be provided for your little one, thus protecting your milk supply while you are separated.
