Woman’s Hospital launches study of Covid-19 pandemic on pregnant women


Woman’s Hospital in Baton Rouge has launched a worldwide study to determine what impacts the Covid-19 pandemic is having on pregnant woman.

Dr. Elizabeth Sutton, Director of Scientific Research at Woman’s Hospital, is leading the study that is the only one of its kind in Louisiana, and one of only a handful in the United States.

“The most unique and exciting thing about this survey is that typically when research is done like this, it’s done after the fact,” Dr. Sutton explained. “This is an incredible opportunity to tell the story of how you’re doing and how it feels to be pregnant in the moment as the pandemic is occurring and as it changes.”

The study is open to any woman, at any stage of pregnancy, anywhere in the world and there are three ways to enroll:

  • Click here to register online
  • Send an email to research@womans.org requesting to enroll
  • Call Woman’s Research at 225-231-5275

Study participation is voluntary and can be ended at any time.
