Learn from leading experts as they discuss the challenges brought forth by the current pandemic on infant feeding.  How best can we protect human milk and breastfeeding in a COVID world?   What effects does human milk have on protecting from COVID-19?  What are the implications of vaccines on breastfeeding?  Listen to the latest science on these subjects and consider how learnings can inform research needed to establish the safety of human milk at crisis onset in the future.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has put enormous stress on healthcare systems and hospital staffing.  However, through all this, families will continue to become pregnant, give birth and breastfeed.
