Q: What is the risk that a COVID-19 infection will affect my unborn child?

A: Infection with COVID-19 can be particularly concerning for those who are pregnant, as they may be at higher risk for severe complications. Although the effects of COVID-19 infection during pregnancy have not yet been fully defined, including effects of infection in the first trimester of pregnancy, infection may precipitate premature labor and/or delivery.  However, full term newborns delivered from mothers with active COVID-19 infections have done well.
