We do universal testing. We are having many asymptomatic patients. How do you feel about mothers wearing a mask and breastfeeding? I am concerned about the long term PTSD and breastfeeding failure. Our mothers are leaving at 48 hours for c/section and 24 hours for vaginal delivery.

There are conflicting messages about separation of mom and baby if mom tests positive for COVID. Does the research lean towards keeping mom and baby together with precautions so that baby can be breastfeed and receive antibodies? or is separation best?

I’ve heard hospitals are sending partners home after 4 hours and women are being transferred to separate facilities. How long can we expect this to be the case? Is this happening everywhere?
