Together, we can save newborn lives – will you join us?

Support us

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, there has been much debate around what is best for new mothers with suspected or confirmed Covid-19, with a number of misconceptions leading some countries to separate mothers from their babies and isolate them in a secure area.

 

Regarding the transmission of Covid-19, the World Health Organisation’s official advice is that mothers and babies are a special case, as the risk of transmission is greatly outweighed by the health benefits of mother and baby contact, such as Kangaroo Mother Care and breastfeeding.

 

Newborns is incredibly proud of our doctors and nurses for leading the way to overcome fear and uncertainty to keep mothers and babies together. We would also like to thank everyone who answered our call and helped raise funds for equipment and hand hygiene items that have kept our mothers and babies safe throughout this challenging year.
