CANADIAN COVID-19 IN PREGNANCY SURVEILLANCE 

Globally, there are significantly limited data on COVID-19 to inform recommendations for pregnant women and their care providers. The effects of COVID-19 in pregnancy on both the mother and fetus are largely unknown. This multi-provincial surveillance project serves to better understanding of COVID-19 in pregnancy, to increase understanding of the epidemiology of COVID-19 in pregnancy, and to provide critical data to inform recommendations for pregnant women and their infants. The 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. A pan-provincial approach, with regional leadership across Canada, is in progress with provincial data collection to be combined for a national dataset of cases of COVID-19 in pregnancy.
