On this episode of the Momxiety Club Podcast you'll learn about the COVID-19 Vaccine and how it can help your breastfed baby from Bridget E. Young, PhD.
Dr. Young is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. She leads a human milk research lab that studies how bioactive components of breast milk impact infant growth and development. Dr. Young is part of a national team that has responded to the COVID-19 pandemic to study the SARS-CoV-2 virus and antibodies against the virus in breastmilk from COVID-19-infected mothers. Her group is also studying how the COVID-19 vaccine impacts breast milk composition.
