COVID-19 Resources for Pregnancy, Birth, Postpartum: Parents and Care Providers

With the rapid spread of the novel Covid-19 virus and the unknown factors we still don’t know about it’s spread, we wanted to start a collection of resources as it relates to pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. We’ll continue to keep this updated as we learn of new information for parents and care providers.

Novel virus refers to a virus not seen before. It can be a virus that is isolated from its reservoir or isolated as the result of spread to an animal or human host where the virus had not been identified before. It can be an emergent virus, one that represents a new strain, but it can also be an extant virus not previously identified.
