Webinar series on breastfeeding and lactation in the COVID-19 era

As coronavirus suddenly spread around the globe, so did inaccurate and unsubstantiated information that led to great uncertainty on the part of mothers and health care professionals. In addition, the COVID-19 situation has brought about changes in clinical practice on the maternity ward: a shortened length of stay in the hospital after delivery, the possible separation of the mother from her baby and increased pressure on health care personnel.

All these factors can impact the appropriate initiation of the mother’s breastfeeding journey as well as its duration. In order to provide you the latest information and research results on breastfeeding, breast milk, safety and health of pregnant women, nursing mothers and their babies in the COVID-19 era, we have created a bespoke webinar series.

Such a format gives us the opportunity to convene, ask questions and discuss ideas and approaches to improve our support to mothers in these difficult times to help them achieve their breastfeeding goals. Furthermore, all past webinars can be watched here too.
