Study Underway on Impact of COVID-19 on Pregnancy

PRIORITY (Pregnancy CoRonavIrus Outcomes RegIsTrY) is a nationwide study of pregnant and postpartum women who are confirmed COVID-19 positive or under investigation for the virus. The study’s purpose is to better understand how COVID-19 impacts pregnant women and their newborns.  
 
Pregnant and postpartum women (within 3 weeks of delivery) who are COVID-19 positive are asked to consider participating in the study in order to advance our knowledge of the virus that will lead to more effective interventions, care and treatment.
 
Upon enrollment, a woman will receive online or phone surveys (based on her preference) and will be asked to consent for release of her medical records. If consent is given, medical records are faxed to the study team. Participants will also be asked if they are willing to contribute biospecimens, such as breast milk that is urgently needed to analyze for the risk of viral transmission.
