The effects of COVID-19 in pregnancy on both the mother and fetus are largely unknown. Our pan-Canadian team has initiated a prospective national surveillance project, led and centrally coordinated in British Columbia, to monitor outcomes associated with COVID-19 in pregnancy. This project will determine the burden of COVID-19 among pregnant women in Canada, as well as maternal and infant outcomes associated with infection, including whether the virus may be transmitted from mother to fetus in pregnancy or post partum. This study will allow Canada to develop urgently needed, relevant, evidence-based recommendations for maternity and pediatric care providers and pregnant women and their families. Data aggregation with international partners will complement global efforts.
