Episode 52: Mom Journey - Breastmilk Donor to Breastmilk Recipient

 

On this episode, we invited Keira Chojnacki to share her breastfeeding journey with her four kiddos. She has been a breastmilk donor, and also a milk donation recipient. Her journey is very unique and diverse.

Keira became a mom at 20 years old. Right after her first baby was born, the first latch was magical. She had a fairly easy breastfeeding journey with her son and was able to donate 400oz of milk when he son was just 3-4 months old.

When her son was 1 year old, she decided to get a breast reduction and continued to give her son the stored breastmilk she had saved up after that. Two years later, Keira gave birth to her second son who ended up in the NICU for an entire month. She started out exclusively pumping and was able to make enough milk for him. She ultimately weaned at 3 months though because it was too difficult to maintain pumping with her two children and everything she had going on in her life.

With her daughter, Keira really wanted to try breastfeeding again....

Episode 34: COVID-19, the Vaccine & Breastfeeding

 

In this episode, Jacqueline Kincer, IBCLC reviews the most pertinent evidence to date regarding COVID-19, current vaccines for COVID-19, and breastfeeding. In June 2020, WHO (World Health Organization) recommended that mothers should continue to breastfeed, and that the benefits of breastfeeding substantially outweigh the potential risks for transmission. 

A study done in May took breastmilk samples from 43 mothers that were negative for the COVID-19 virus but 3 mothers tested positive for viral particles by RT-PCR from those three infants one infant tested positive but it was unknown if they were breastfed. The other two tested negative as one was breastfed and the other newborn was fed expressed breastmilk after viral RNA particles were no longer detected. 

RNA detection in the breast milk is not the same as the virus for transmission of COVID-19 to occur it would require replicative and infectious virus to be able to reach target sites in the infant.
