Please join us for the most current recommendations about breastfeeding during the COVID-19 pandemic. There is a lot of confusion and concern over whether it is safe to keep mothers and babies together after delivery, whether a mother should continue breastfeeding if she is diagnosed with the virus and is donor milk still safe. We hope to clarify what the evidence and recommendations are and support optimal breastfeeding.

Come hear from our panelists and be ready with your questions. Feel free to submit any questions to OBRC (obrc@ouhsc.edu) ahead of time though we will do our best to answer questions live as well.
