Do you have questions about the zika virus and breastfeeding?

The U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) has issued this statement:

To date, there are no reports of infants getting Zika virus through breastfeeding. Because of the benefits of breastfeeding, mothers are encouraged to breastfeed even in areas where Zika virus is found.
As always, if you have any any concerns, you should consult with your healthcare provider.
