COVID-19 Vaccines and Pregnancy – Breastfeeding

If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or are thinking of having a baby, then the advice from the experts is to have your COVID-19 vaccine. Babies can potentially catch coronavirus after birth from anyone infected with the virus, even if that person does not feel unwell. It is recommended that you take your baby home as soon as it is safe to do so and follow government advice on how to stay safe and prevent the spread of the virus.
