COVID-19 is a new disease and we are still learning how it affects pregnancy, childbirth and newborns. Currently there is:

  • no evidence pregnant women are at a higher risk of becoming seriously ill from COVID-9
  • no evidence a developing child could be negatively affected by COVID-19
  • no evidence mother-to-child transmission of COVID-19 occurs through childbirth
  • no evidence the virus that causes COVID-19 is found in breast milk
