For mothers with coronavirus, baby s first coo is over the phone

MOSCOW - “It’s a girl and she is fine, we all are fine,” said Rayhona, 23. “They have shown her to me on a smartphone.” More than 150 babies have been born to mothers with suspected coronavirus infections at Moscow’s City Clinical Hospital Number 15, and the hospital says not a single newborn caught the infection. But to achieve that, the babies are separated from their mothers at birth, breastfeeding is banned, and the mothers are kept quarantined in a ward for two weeks. Rayhona wore a mask and was hooked up to medical devices, sharing a room with another new mother also suspected of carrying the virus. The mothers “are admitted with some respiratory distress already and we need to be very professional to determine when to deliver the baby and how to deliver it,” the hospital’s head doctor, Valeriy Vechorko, told Reuters. “I can say this for sure – we did not have a single transmission of the virus to a baby.”
