We don’t have a lot of specific information on how COVID-19 affects pregnant women. What we do know is that “pregnant women experience changes in their bodies that may increase their risk of some infections. With viruses from the same family as COVID-19, and other viral respiratory infections, such as influenza, women have had a higher risk of developing severe illness (CDC, 2020).”
For this reason we are taking extra precautions as directed by federal, state, and county public health authorities to protect our patients by using the best information available at this time.
