Mother and Baby on Floor


This longitudinal study which began in May 2020 examines the effects of COVID-19 on women during the perinatal period (pregnancy and postpartum). Through our online surveys and Zoom-based observational design, we hope to learn more about stress, well being, resilience, and social support among mothers and their children during this unprecedented time. To date, we have enrolled over 2,000 women across the U.S. and are now in Wave 3 of our data collection.

This research study is conducted by Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School within the Departments of Pediatric Newborn Medicine and Psychiatry.
