Early Essential Newborn Care can still be used with mothers who have COVID-19 if effective infection control measures are applied. Acta Paediatr. 2021 Mar 11. doi: 10.1111/apa.15837.

We describe the first infant born to a woman with COVID-19 in Vietnam, by Caesarean section at 36 weeks and five days of gestation. The mother and baby remained together during their hospital stay and prolonged skin-to-skin contact and early and exclusive breastfeeding were achieved. This was in line with the World Health Organization’s Early Essential Newborn Care (EENC) recommendations, the national Vietnamese standard of care since 2014. The baby remained virus free throughout the 34-day postpartum follow up. CONCLUSION: The EENC approach can still be used with mothers who have COVID-19 if effective infection control measures are applied.
