Pregnancy during COVID-19

During this time, keeping yourself and your baby healthy is more important than ever. If you are pregnant during COVID-19, you probably have questions. What if I get it? Should I do anything different? Am I or my baby at greater risk?

To help, we’ve compiled a list of things to keep in mind and to ask your doctor about during your appointments. Please print this and keep it throughout your pregnancy to help you plan for the healthiest and safest delivery.
