COVID-19 and Breastfeeding
May 5, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Presented by Diane Lynn Spatz, PhD, RN-BC, FAAN on Tues, May 5, 2020.
This presentation will review the various international recommendations and limited research studies related to human milk and breastfeeding and COVID-19 and discuss the conflicting recommendations. Despite conflicting recommendations regarding direct breastfeeding and skin to skin contact, all recommendations support the use of human milk. I will present what interventions we can do to ensure that families are making informed feeding decisions and that we give evidence-based guidance to ensure that mothers effectively establish milk supply.
