Our team at FORA has partnered with UCSF to provide the first data about COVID-19 infections during the critical first trimester of pregnancy and its impact on women’s health and that of their developing babies. Fora is proud to be on the Steering Committee and working to advance what we know about COVID-19 and early pregnancy. We believe that you shouldn’t have to put your dreams on hold to have a family due to this pandemic, but we want you to have all of the data possible. By enrolling in this observational study, we will all be able to learn more together. Fora is the only clinic in Austin on the Steering Committee and working towards helping us all learn more.
The first ten weeks of pregnancy are the most critical and most vulnerable for fetal development. This is the period when all of a baby’s organ systems form and the placenta - the crucial connection between mom and fetus - develops.
The lifelong health trajectory of a baby can be impacted during this time, yet there are NO data about the impact of COVID-19 infection during this critical period.
Given the potential dangers to mothers and unborn babies, we need answers now to be equipped to support and counsel women who have become pregnant or are planning to get pregnant during this global pandemic. There are also risks associated with NOT knowing if or how COVID-19 infection affects pregnant women, including anxiety or changes in behavior such as prolonged sheltering-in-place. Even if the COVID-19 virus has no effect on pregnant women or their babies, we must collect this data quickly to have an evidence-based approach to best inform and safeguard our patients, empowered by facts, not fear.
Solid epidemiologic data about the effects of prior viral epidemics on pregnancy (SARS, H1N1) is limited due to a lack of high-quality prospective studies that follow women from the earliest stages of pregnancy. Historically, the first trimester has been inaccessible to medical research because most women don’t arrive at their initial obstetrician appointment until close to the end of the first trimester - several weeks after the critical period of fetal development has closed.
Understanding if and how COVID-19 impacts pregnant women and their developing babies is essential. Everyone is a stakeholder – pregnant women, their unborn children and families, healthcare providers, and society at large. We are all in this together.
