Study: COVID-19 in pregnant women across the United States

As the COVID-19 pandemic rages across the world and researchers race to find treatments, there is still a lack of consistent data on COVID-19 in pregnancy.

In the hospital, the presence of SARS-CoV-2 infections creates unique challenges related to managing pregnant patients and their infants on labor and delivery units. Healthcare professionals must implement testing and utilization strategies for personal protective equipment (PPE) on the labor and delivery units to ensure safety amidst this novel coronavirus. In addition, standardization of care delivery in the form of team-based protocols is necessary for improving outcomes.

OBHG’s report, “COVID-19 in pregnant women across the United States,” looks at the first 200 COVID-19-positive pregnant patients who received care from OBHG clinicians in the hospital setting. OBHG researchers conducted the analysis to determine whether patients were presenting with obstetrical or COVID-19 complaints, the volume of asymptomatic positives in the labor and delivery patient population and the geographic distribution of COVID-19 patient encounters.
