Breastfeeding during COVID-19

There is currently no evidence that COVID-19 is transmitted through breastmilk. Here are some tips to help keep parents and infants safe while breastfeeding during the time of coronavirus.

I am a lactating mother with a suspected, probable, or confirmed case of COVID-19

I am a lactating mother who is ill and unable to breastfeed or express breastmilk.

I have a confirmed case of COVID-19 and have therefore been separated from my child while I recover.

If you are a mother and are COVID-19 positive, you should continue breastfeeding and should not be separated from your infant unless you are too ill or too weak to breastfeed or express milk.
