Breastfeeding and COVID-19

We still have a lot to learn when it comes to COVID-19, especially when it comes to moms-to-be and how it affects all aspects of the pregnancy journey. However, for those moms who are interested in breastfeeding, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention is currently reporting that breast milk isn’t likely to spread the virus to babies. Since the pandemic has begun, breastfeeding numbers are up. However, you and your healthcare provider should be the ones to decide whether you should or should not begin or continue breastfeeding.
