SARS-Cov-2 infection: SIN recommendations endorsed by UENPS

BREASTFEEDING and SARS-CoV-2 INFECTION 

The recent epidemic caused by a novel coronavirus isolated in Wuhan (China) at the end of 2019 (SARS-CoV-2) raises, among other clinical and public health issues, questions relating to infection during pregnancy and the possible transmission of the infection from mother to child before, during and after childbirth. Doubts also arise as to the safety of the joint management of mother and child after childbirth and of breastfeeding.

These questions are dealt with in this document drafted by Dr. Riccardo Davanzo, Chair of the Technical Panel on Breastfeeding (TAS) of the Ministry of Health (MOH), and Prof. Fabio Mosca, President of the Italian Society of Neonatology (SIN), with the collaboration of Dr. Guido Moro, President of AIBLUD (Human Milk Banking Association of Italy), Dr. Fabrizio Sandri, Secretary of SIN and Prof. Massimo Agosti, President of the SIN Breastfeeding Commission.
