As practising clinicians in this unprecedented time, we all need to act on local and national guidelines for the management of Covid-19. We need to engage with management and clinical teams to plan our local response in our own hospitals and in line with the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC). This interim guidance has been issued to provide additional guidance to clinicians (doctors, midwives and nurses) during the COVID-19 pandemic on the importance of continuing to support and encourage breastfeeding during this time.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, the HSE and Faculty of Paediatrics encourage breastfeeding to protect children.
