This week one of my lovely listeners asked me on Instagram if I could update my COVID-19 & pregnancy episode from earlier this year. With the announcement that multiple vaccines will become available soon, I thought it would be a wonderful idea to provide some updated information about COVID and pregnancy (as of December 2020). As always, make sure you check out resources from the CDC and ACOG for the most up-to-date info.
In this episode I give a quick refresher on what we know about COVID-19 and pregnancy, including risk factors for severe illness, whether your baby can get COVID while you are pregnant and what to expect if you contract COVID while pregnant. I'll also walk you through what to expect if you are COVID-positive at the time of your birth.
Then I talk about the upcoming COVID-19 vaccines, how they were developed and what you should consider when deciding whether to get vaccinated while pregnant.
