The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. After six months of age, infants should receive age appropriate foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.

Having said that, continue to observe proper hygiene habits and social distancing to keep safe & healthy.
Prenatal visits are important for both mum and your unborn child. However, given the current global pandemic we are facing, it is important to communicate with your obstetricians about the interval between visits. Furthermore, you can also help manage your checks by purchasing things such as a blood pressure cuff for home use and to monitor your unborn child’s movements. We recommend for pregnant women to talk to their obstetrician about their prenatal care and continue to attend appointments as long as their obstetrician feels it is appropriate.
