Milk Sharing: Comparative Risks and Biomedical Ethics
The advent of Internet forums that facilitate peer-to-peer human milk sharing has resulted in health authorities stating that sharing human milk is dangerous. There are risks associated with all forms of infant feeding, including breastfeeding and the use of manufactured infant formulas. Part one of this presentation will compare the risks of milk sharing with the risks of using infant formula and include suggestions for risk mitigation. The facilitation of peer-to-peer milk sharing via the Internet has proven challenging to many health professionals and organizations. Biomedical ethics can be used to explore medical dilemmas and find reasoned, consistent, and defensible solutions to moral problems. The principles of biomedical ethics--autonomy, veracity, beneficence, nonmaleficence, confidentiality, and justice--are applied to peer-to-peer milk sharing in the second part of this presentation. Application of these principles provides guidance to assist health workers to act ethically in their interactions with mothers and others around the peer sharing of milk

COVID-19 Guidance for Maternal and Newborn Care: Who’s Doing What and Why
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the care of pregnant, birthing, and post-partum women and their infants all over the world. Where women are suspected or confirmed as having COVID-19, hospital practices have ranged from isolating infants from their mothers and proscribing the provision of expressed breastmilk to supporting mothers to have skin-to-skin with their infants, early initiation of breastfeeding, direct breastfeeding, and rooming in day and night. This presentation will briefly summarize the evidence base for breastfeeding and close mother-infant contact in the COVID-19 pandemic. It will also describe the variance in government and professional development guidance around the world, anomalies in guidance, which guidance documents have had the most influence internationally, and provide examples of good and poor practice in guidance development. Finally, this presentation will discuss the importance of emergency planning for infant and young child feeding and the need to learn from the mistakes of the COVID-19 pandemic.
