Women who are pregnant or may become pregnant should avoid travel to areas where the Zika virus is found. What about someone who is breastfeeding? Should they keep breastfeeding if they may be infected?
As of this writing, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has indicated that breastfeeding should continue. Please find the most up to date information here: www.cdc.gov/zika/index.html or www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/65/wr/mm6502e1.htm
