Post a reply: Remote counselling during COVID-19

Have you switched from face-to-face to remote IYCF / breastfeeding counselling due to COVID-19? If so, what do you feel is working well and what isn't working well? How have you had to adapt your counselling sessions due to their delivery mode? What has been the impact of remote counselling? 

The IFE Core Group are in the process of developing operatoinal guidance on how to implement WHO's 2018 guidelines on "counselling of women to improve breastfeeding practices" in humanitarian settings. The guidelines include a recommendation on "mode" i.e. breastfeeding counselling should be provided face-to-face but may be complemented by remote methods. We are keen to draw upon the latest experiences from the covid-19 crisis to inform the operational guidance for emergency practitioners.
