COVID-19 & Pregnancy Outcomes: Update – Is it Safe to Get Pregnant?

Is it safe to get pregnant during COVID-19? Board certified OBGYN and REI, Dr. Natalie Crawford, MD discusses the latest data. As a fertility doctor, she talks about Coronavirus every day with her patients – wanting to conceive, undergoing fertility treatments, and newly pregnant. Now she is reviewing an articles from The American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (The “Grey” Journal) reviewing pregnancy outcomes after COVID-19 infection.

The truth is, there is no universal answer. Pregnancy in the time of COVID is not without risks, but this does not mean you must delay your dream of a family. But more than anything, you deserve to be educated and make an informed decision.

If you like journal article reviews let me know!! I (and your favorite topics to cover).
