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.


Remember to maintain respiratory hygiene while feeding your child.
