ABOUT LOTUS

COVID-19 Update

Supporting lactation is important to human health at all times, but especially during times of emergency. Breastfeeding protects newborns from getting sick and also helps protect them throughout their infancy and childhood. Breastfeeding is particularly effective against infectious diseases because it strengthens the immune system by directly transferring antibodies from the mother. Although home visits are temporarily suspended at present, please reach out to us to schedule a video conference consult at your convenience
