COVID-19 studies with nursing Moms
We get queries about participating in our post-vaccination study but we have completed recruitment for that. Thanks to everyone who has helped or was interested.
We are developing a project to analyze colostrum and early milk samples from women who get the COVID shots while pregnant
**March 31: we have completed recruitment of lactating women with COVID-19**
We are still seeking nursing Moms who have recently developed COVID-19 symptoms and have a positive test or have a test in process. Please see the main page for the COVID 19 study.
The detail for who we hope joins the study are:
- You have given birth in the past 146 days (5 months)
- Your COVID symptoms started in the past 21 days
- You have a positive COVID test (talk to us about getting started if you are waiting for test results).
We and others have done some analysis of immune responses in breastmilk but now we are trying to be more thorough in following Moms.
Media coverage of the SARS-CoV-2 vaccination study with lactating women
Note that its going to be a while before we have real data because we are following immunized Moms for three weeks or so after the second shot, a bit less than two months total for the mRNA-based vaccines.
