[SPECIAL EP] Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Pregnancy: What You Need to Know – All About Pregnancy and Birth Podcast
by Dr. Nicole Calloway Rankins

SPECIAL EPISODE: Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Pregnancy: What You Need to Know

I have a special, timely episode for you today about COVID-19 (also known as coronavirus). Some listeners asked me what they need to know about how coronavirus could affect their pregnancy and baby, so this episode should help answer some of those questions.

In this episode, I'll give you an overview on what this coronavirus is, how this outbreak has spread so far, and what symptoms to watch for. We will also talk about how to take care of yourself and help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

And most importantly, I'll share some research about the impact of coronavirus on pregnancy and babies. There hasn't been a ton of research yet, so it's crucial to stay up to date as more information becomes available. But overall, the information in this episode should reassure any parents who are feeling worried about coronavirus. 

I'll be sharing more information in the All About Pregnancy and Birth Facebook Group as the situation develops, so follow along there for updates on the relationship between COVID-19 and pregnancy. You can follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for general updates, too. 

In this Episode, You’ll Learn About:

  • What the coronavirus is and how it spreads
  • An overview of the coronavirus outbreak up to March 10th, 2020
  • Symptoms of coronavirus and who is most at risk from the disease
  • What we know about how coronavirus affects pregnancy and babies
  • How to help prevent the spread of coronavirus
  • Why you should stay calm and where you can find up-to-date information as the outbreak changes
