Bonus: How Does COVID-19 Affect Pregnant Women and Newborns?

April 16, 2020

In part five of their “Momming During Coronavirus” bonus series, Shanna and Laura interview neonatologists Dr. Diana Montoya-Williams and Dr. Joanna Parga-Belinkie about how COVID-19 is affecting newborn babies and pregnant women. The doctors answer all of Laura and Shanna’s burning questions about the novel coronavirus, including whether newborns are at risk for contracting the disease, what pregnant mothers can expect when they go into labor during this time, whether moms-to-be should consider non-hospital births, if trying to conceive is advised at this time and more. Dr. Diana and Dr. Joanna host the podcast Baby Doctor Mamas, a show for new parents by physician-mothers specializing in newborn medicine. They can be found at babydoctormamas.com.
