JOCELYN HAS BEEN FEATURED ON:

Pregnant and breast-feeding women are understandably looking for information about COVID-19 and how it might affect their growing fetuses and infants. I wanted to direct you to Dr Aviva Romm’s COVID-19 series, which I have found to be a wonderful source of reliable, evidence-based information.

Dr Aviva Romm is a Yale-trained MD, as well as a former midwife and herbalist. She is publishing a series of free articles on her website, including an update on COVID-19 as it relates to pregnancy and breastfeeding, which shows promising data right now in terms of (to date) low risk of vertical transmission (pregnant women to babies in utero), as well as low risks of transmission into breastmilk. She will be be updating the series and I encourage you to consult her page for ongoing information here.

For COVID-19 transmission in general, I am personally in full support of cautionary measures that are taken to flatten the curve and reduce the burden on our health care system and protect our vulnerable populations. These measures include social distancing, frequent hand-washing and sanitary measures, avoiding indoor gatherings, avoiding unnecessary travel, requesting testing if infection is suspected, and self-isolating as advised. We all have an important role to play in this outbreak.

I hope you have found this helpful, and do let me know if you have any questions!
