Having a baby during the COVID pandemic

Having a baby during the COVID pandemic

We want to improve care for people experiencing pregnancy and birth during the COVID-19 pandemic. Researchers at the University of Washington School of Nursing are conducting a study to explore the experiences of care during pregnancy and birth during the COVID-19 pandemic in order to inform future care practice and policy. We are interested in hearing from both birthing people AND nurses!

The study consists of a 1-2 hour interview over video or phone, in which you’ll have the opportunity to share your experiences around pregnancy and birth.

Participant Eligibility

1. Be 18 years old or older
2. Be pregnant or have given birth during the COVID-19 pandemic (March 2020 or later)
3. OR be a nurse who was working or currently working in pregnancy and birth care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
