Share your pandemic story

Pregnant and breastfeeding families, health care providers, and all public health stakeholders are urged to share stories about how the pandemic and pandemic response is impacting young families through the “How is the COVID-19 Pandemic Impacting Infant Feeding?” story tool.

Your insights will help guide USBC’s work to create a landscape of breastfeeding support, during this pandemic and beyond. There are options to share privately and anonymously.

Why is your action today so important? The COVID-19 pandemic has created seismic shifts in the infant and young child feeding landscape with dangerous compromises to the initiation and establishment of breastfeeding. To document how breastfeeding families have been impacted, the USBC is publishing a series of documents titled “Voices from the Field: COVID-19 and Infant Feeding.” These publications aim to demonstrate the impact of the pandemic and associated policy responses on the infant feeding experience. Stories shared privately with USBC are not included in public documents.
