Jessica Madden, Aeroflow Medical Director, Discusses What to Know About Coronavirus if You’re Pregnant or Have a Newborn
As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says, we don’t have much scientific research telling us whether pregnant women are more susceptible to the coronavirus — or whether they’re more likely to come down with more serious symptoms. Dr. Jessica Madden, an Ohio-based pediatrician and medical director of Aeroflow Breastpumps adds “One small study that compared pregnant women who came down with coronavirus with others who came down with it found that they generally weren’t any sicker … which is slightly reassuring,” She also pointed to a recent case study looking at nine women who had coronavirus during pregnancy whose babies were born healthy and symptom-free — although she stressed again that the available research is just pretty darn thin.
