Join Our Veklury® (REMDESIVIR) & Breastfeeding Study

Mommy’s Milk is looking for people who are nursing and who are currently taking Veklury® (remdesivir) for the treatment of COVID-19 infection. Our research study will examine whether Veklury® can be found in human milk and whether this has any effect on the infant’s growth or development. If you’re taking Veklury®, please consider joining our study!
