The Continuum: Keeping our Lactation Community Healthy During COVID-19
February 1, 2022 - March 1, 2022
By Laurel Wilson, IBCLC, RLC, CLE, CCCE, CLD
As the novel Coronavirus, COVID-19 continues to impact our communities, lactation professionals have specific concerns. There are many aspects to consider: keeping oneself and family safe, keeping your clients/families educated, how to provide services safely and robustly, and how to protect your business during a crisis. This presentation will briefly review the basics of what is known about COVID and pregnant people and babies and what your clients may need to anticipate in the event of an infection pre-birth or during the postpartum period. What do families need to know about vaccines and human milk feeding? We will review some business practicalities for lactation professionals, such as effective communication with your clients, screening your clients for COVID-19, protecting yourself during home visits and support groups, virtual care, and so much more. We will end with a robust Q and A.
This event will be held entirely virtual.
