Current information does not indicate that pregnancy alone causes a person to be at increased risk for serious complications if they are infected with COVID-19. However, those who are pregnant are known to be at greater risk of severe complications from other respiratory infections, such as influenza. That is why people who are pregnant are considered an at-risk population for COVID-19. Your physician can review your medical record to give you a greater understanding of your personal risk.
Here are answers to some common questions related to pregnancy and COVID-19. Please note that these answers are subject to change as we receive more information about COVID-19. If you have additional questions not answered here, call your physician or the Northwestern Medicine COVID-19 hotline at 312.47.COVID (312.472.6843).
