The global pandemic has impacted every area of life, including the considerations and concerns that new mothers have bringing their babies into the world – will they be able to have a partner’s support in their birthing room? Is it safe to breastfeed their baby if they, the new mother, test positive for SARS-CoV2? Should any family or friends be allowed around the baby? Is it safe to bring the baby in for routine checkups and well-child care in the middle of the pandemic? There are many questions that surround this special and critical time in a new mother and baby’s life.
