COVID-19 and breastfeeding

It is well known that breastfeeding provides infants with protection against a range of viral infections. Antibodies to COVID-19 have been found in the breastmilk of mothers infected with COVID-19 and those vaccinated against COVID-19. Health professionals can reassure mothers that they can put their baby skin-to-skin, start breastfeeding and continue breastfeeding if they are confirmed/suspected to be infected with COVID-19. COVID-19 has not been shown to be transmitted through breastmilk.
