Maternal Hospitalization For Acute Disease

Very Low Risk for breastfeeding

Safe. Compatible.
Minimal risk for breastfeeding and infant.

Assess clinical condition of the mother.
Find-out the way to keep the child beside the mother. If that is not possible, try to pump-out breast milk and offer it to the child. Do not forget that mothers may suffer of fever and malaise if milk is not pumped regularly.


We do not have alternatives for Maternal Hospitalization For Acute Disease since it is relatively safe.

Suggestions made at e-lactancia are done by APILAM´s pediatricians and pharmacists, and are based on updated scientific publications.
It is not intended to replace the relationship you have with your doctor but to compound it.

Jose Maria Paricio, Founder & President of APILAM/e-Lactancia

Your contribution is essential for this service to continue to exist. We need the generosity of people like you who believe in the benefits of breastfeeding.

Thank you for helping to protect and promote breastfeeding.
