Ongoing news coverage about coronavirus / COVID 19 can be alarming and it is important to keep track of the most recent current guidance. If you’re breastfeeding, you may be worrying about whether you would be able to pass the illness on to your baby if you caught it yourself.
Please look here for more about milk for your baby during the coronavirus pandemic.
Please see this page on the La Leche League International website, which is being regularly updated to reflect the most recent guidance.
**LLLGB groups still suspended in England, Scotland and Wales owing to Covid-19**
LLLGB is eager to return to a ‘new normal’ and to be able to provide much needed breastfeeding support face to face with families in our communities.
However, based on current government guidance around gatherings and social distancing, in England, Scotland and Wales we are still not able to run our groups indoors or outdoors, or to provide at home support.
The principle remains that everyone should minimise the number of people they interact with to reduce the transmission rate. Social situations are still closely regulated and restricted.
In the Isle of Man, social distancing restrictions have been lifted. This means that at the current time, meetings can recommence with strict hygiene precautions and following local ‘stay responsible’ guidelines.
We are watching the guidelines and look forward to when we are able to announce we are opening our in-person groups again.
(updated 26 June 2020)
We are running online meetings across the UK. This is how.
If you need breastfeeding support and can’t find the information you need on this website, you can look for a local LLL Leader to contact by phone here.
