Most women and babies do well but there is an increase in pre-term labor and more severe disease requiring supplemental oxygen for pregnant women who contract COVID-19, according to the Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology. Vaccination can prevent severe outcomes. We do recommend that our pregnant patients who do not have underlying conditions or risk factors receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Please talk to your obstetrician to see if the COVID-19 vaccine is right for you. Contact Women’s Health for an appointment.
