As communities around the nation respond to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the USBC invites pregnant and breastfeeding families, health care providers, and all public health stakeholders to share stories about how the pandemic and pandemic response is impacting infant feeding experiences.
We must work together to protect, promote, and support breastfeeding during emergencies and every day. By answering the following questions, you can help illuminate our nation's most pressing infant and young child feeding needs during the pandemic.
The USBC will create a record of the lived experiences of families, providers, and communities as we highlight your stories in communications with stakeholders, policymakers, the media, and future action campaigns, blogs, and articles. Stories will be shared without any identifying information.
Please complete the form below to share your perspective on how the pandemic is impacting infant feeding. Due to software limitations, USBC can accept only one story per email address.
Thank you for taking the time to provide your insights on how the global coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic is impacting the infant feeding landscape in your community.
The USBC is closely monitoring this emergency situation. Please visit our "Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies, including COVID-19" webpage for additional resources and stay tuned on email, Facebook, and Twitter for updates and action opportunities to help minimize the impact of this virus.
