The COVID Mothers Study is looking for mothers and infants
who have been affected by COVID to see how maternity practices impacted
moms, newborns and older infants. The study consists of an 8-minute
anonymous online survey.
To be eligible, either the mom or her infant had to have had
COVID or suspected COVID before the infant’s first birthday.
Moms need to wait until the infant is at least 1 month old
to fill out the survey. Read more about the
study and the researcher team.
Help other moms and babies!
If you or your baby had COVID-19, we want to hear about your experiences.
Take the 8-minute survey!
We are committed to ensure that donor human milk continues to be safe and available for all sick babies in our communities. As an organization that provides essential services that supports health care, we have a commitment to those we serve and in partnership with our donors ensure we are able to continue providing these necessary services.
