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.
Women who are breastfeeding can have Covid-19 vaccinations that are currently authorised for use in the UK if they meet the other conditions for receiving the vaccine.
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 update – 29 March 2021**
With the lockdown beginning to ease in some areas, LLLGB is planning how we will resume in-person support where we are permitted. This will be different in different areas of GB and will vary between local groups as each group and volunteer Leader will have different personal circumstances for when they can restart in-person support.
For now, we’re continuing to provide online support, while local groups make plans to restart in person groups over the coming months. Please keep an eye on your local group pages and websites for more details.
We are still working to support families in safe ways so 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 or look for an online meeting in our calendar here.
