Researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School aim to learn more about the effects of COVID-19 on individuals during the perinatal period (pregnancy and postpartum). Through our online surveys, we hope to learn more about stress, well being, resilience, and social support during this unprecedented time.



We have recruited and enrolled perinatal individuals nationwide into our online survey since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

To date, we have two cohorts looking at individuals’ experiences throughout the pandemic, including during the Omicron variant surge. We are in the process of recruiting a third cohort to continue the study.
