Study on Health of Mothers and Newborns Throughout H1N1 and Cold/Flu Season

My friend Rachel, author of The Beginning of Motherhood blog and Labor and Delivery Nurse, is conducting a survey about the outcomes resulting from current CDC recommendations regarding H1N1 and new mothers and babies. She needs study participants from three groups of women:
  1. Those who have symptoms and have been isolated from their baby but continue to feed breast milk,
  2. Those who have had no symptoms, were given baby within 2 hours after birth and breastfed,
  3. Those who have no symptoms, but were not with baby within 2 hours after birth and breastfed or expressed milk for infants.
All of these should be full terms infants (37-42 weeks) . They can be born at the hospital, or alternative birthing area. She is hoping to follow these babies for six months to see who is getting sick.
