I also wanted to update the study I posted in the last post. My takeaways from the study confirm what previous studies have shown :

#1 Covid-19 does not seem to affect pregnant women worse than the general population

#2 There could be higher rates of third trimester complications, so very important to be extra vigilant after 30 weeks.

#3 Risk of vertical transmission (mother to baby in utero) appears very small.

I also posted a new website with breastfeeding support called

www.firstdroplets.com on our OB education page.


The hospital has a cool thermal camera when you come in so I thought I would put a little picture of it and some other pictures from the hospital.
