Abstract

The healthcare system is being challenged in the United States and worldwide due to the pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). However, all through this pandemic, families will continue to birth children. Childbirth educators play a particularly important role in ensuring that families receive appropriate evidence-based information about human milk and breastfeeding as a lifesaving medical intervention. In the current COVID-19 crisis, breastfeeding and the provision of human milk remains recommended by national and international organizations.
